i actually bought one on the 24th, the money was taken out of my bank on the 27th and on june the 1st i sent an email inquiring about my order because i paid for priority shipping and still got no resonse from them, so yesterday i sent another email telling them to just cancel it, they send me an email today apoligizing and said they would transfer the money back to my bank, this was the company http://www.smithfarmstores.com/p-2401-bsk1000-standard-barrel-kit.aspx so now i need to reorder it from someone else.

LOL, you guys are to much, ok on to more serious things, i found a door for my firebox, took alot of searching on the net but i found it, it measures 13 inches tall and 20 inches wide. and has a built in Temp guage "the white half moon thing in the picture" that goes up to 550 degrees.

Oh and i got my axle cut down and welded back together, cut my side rails and my crossmembers to length after work. im hoping to have the trailer welded together so i can Tow it home saturday evening and get my cooker up on it.

Well tomorrow is today and ive finally started putting the trailer together, this is how you build one on your back patio, in the picture below you'll see i have the first pieces tack welded, this is so i can make any adjustments before putting some beads on the joints, when laying it out measure from one end of the siderail and mark you position for your cross member, do the same on the other side, now put the pieces in place and square it up with your eye the best you can then take a tape measure and measure corner to corner diagonaly and move you side rails till you get both cross corner measurements the same, now your frame is square, now to make sure its not twisted take some twine and go corner to corner diagonaly and your string should just barely be touching your cross members, once all of that is confirmed tack weld your joints together, keep an eye on your frame to keep it square to much welding in one spot can pull the metal and mess your measurements up. slowly weld your joints up and check your measurements as you go, ill post some more pics later on as i progress.

Few more pics of the trailer, debating whether to go back out and put the tongue on, the back will be finished when the cooker is installed, the firebox is gonna partially drop down into the frame and the door will be on the backend of the trailer. the axle mounts are just tack welded incase i need to move them.

Few pics with the wheels on, ran into a little problem with this one, lol, the tires are to big and the sidewall is rubbing the axle mount bolts, so im gonna have to take these big truck tires off and put on some smaller ones, which i need to do anyway to lower the trailer some, should be able to lower it about 3 to 6 inches depending on what type of tire i put on. I'll put the tongue on in the morning and get the cooker up on it, YAY. Very Happy Just need to figure out which side i want to cook on, driver or passenger side.

Looking good there Hillbilly. Your moving right along, that sure is a nice welder. I am using a stick welder on my project and with my lack of welding experience it's hard for me to get the welds as clean as i would like. I quess thats what grinders are for.

Looks like you're coming along nicely there!

One big question, is the gate in your fence big enough to get the trailer out of?

I bought a brand spanking new John Deere riding mower once and got it home to find that it was 6 inches too wide to fit in the backyard!!! Embarassed

I'm sure you checked that, but thought i'd be an educated donkey for a minute there. Laughing

Ty CB, been lazy today, took the other two wheels to walmart to get the right size tires i needed and almost started a fight in the tireshop today, LMAO. I had my truck backed up to the plastic chain they keep across the bay doors to keep people out and the guy that's doing my tires takes them over to the balancing machine and starts to balance them and I'm watching this guy, hes already put 4 big weights on and this older walmart man walks up to him and says you have the wrong setting on the machine and the guy says no i dont so they exchange a few words and me being the way iam i had to jump in when i seen the guy starting to put the 5th weight on, i was like, hey man whats going on i know my wheels dont need that much weight, lol. so then the older guy steps back in and says something else to him, next thing i know they're yelling at each other and the younger guy said F it you do it and i said i don't care who does it i just want it right, lol. so the older man takes care of it and i left came home and put the new wheels on the trailer. Very Happy Pic of the new tires, as you can see it lowered the trailer down nicely, trailer deck will be 20 inches now instead of 27
