I decided to not go with the DP design for several reasons but I did get started on my smoker this week and here is where I am now.

Here is a couple pics with the door closed

These are the controls to put the heat where you want it in the cook chamber

Interesting.

What are the three handles at the end of the pipe in the bottom pic? How about the box on the front with the pipe to the firebox?

Must be pretty calm out to be weldind outside. Cool Cooker - do those handles on the bottom of the exhaust control the heat and smoke inside the cooker?

mrcustomsteel, like Bushbow asked the three handles do control the heat-smoke The pipe has three slots, well rather more like holes in the bottom which are around 3" wide by 7" long and those handles run to shoes on the inside that cover those holes so you can open or close or ajust them to your liking.

The box in the front and the pipe is where the fan is but mine will be a little different.

Thanks john ziske.

It just snowed the day before. It was in the lower 40's the day he was welding and up in the 50's today and 60's tomorow.

We always say if you don't like the weather here in Kentucky just stick around a day or two and it will change.

Well I've got the pit up on the trailer and mounted. I also went and picked up a firebox today that is a 22+30+1/4 in thick stainless and plan getting it on this coming saturday.

The guy I got the firebox from has some grate material that he will give me if I want it. The stuff is also stainless and would be used for the cook surface but it is not like expanded metal it is more like cat walk that has openings about 1/8 to 3/16 wide by 1"1\2 long and not as heavy as cat walk. What do you guys think, are the gaps to narrow?

THANKS again
