Thanks ckone. Is that rig in your avatar a similar shape to this one?


No, it was all square, kind of like a big coffin with an inboard out board fire box. It was a loner, but brought me three top tens with a 3rd place in chicken.

And that pit is awesome looking. Can't wait to see it finished.

I was thinking something like this for the back.



The warmer box is 24" sq and that EGA is 17" tall X 16" wide. I kind of eyeballed it with photoshop to get an idea.

Pit would be in black and this steel would be painted and stand off the black pit 3/8 or 1/2 inch or so. What do you think?

D and I are still working on the doors.

I'm going down to see the pit on Monday, I'll post some pics.

Here is some pieces for the "theme" of the pit.

The hand grenades will be handles. the E/G/A (Eagle, Globe, Anchor) will be on the back. The .50 cal round was to cool to pass up for $4 so I'm gonna use it somewhere!

So I get a text while driving so I ask my wife to read it. She says, "Got the grenades. Pistols not feasible. Checking alternative". She liketa' $h!t. If you had said "president" in that text the feds would have kicked in my door. Laughing

Cool toys to add to the rig. See you monday Stel.

Great looking cooker, Sgt. Stel. mrcustomsteel is doing one fine job on it.
Love that EGA on it. Still laughing about the text.
