EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!

I really admire your ingenuity, resourcefullness, and your mad metal-working skills. You're going to end up with a fine, fine portable smoking machine. Nice to see you have a W kettle, as well.

Do you have an idea yet what you'll do for your first cook?

To be honest, no havn't though about it, but since you asked, i know ill cook some ribs for sure, i have never smoked a brisket so ill probably do one of those and last but not least some ribeye steaks.

Ty KAM, i cant wait either i just need to finish the fire box inside so i can weld the bottom on, need to weld in some agle iron for the firegrate. kinda wishing i wouldve used 1/4 inch or better for the box but i got the 3/16th for free, you guys think it wil be ok? im wondering if i should weld in another layer of the 3/16th with a air gap between the 2 before i close the bottom up.

If your gonna leave an air gap you might look at stuffing it with insulation(not sure what kind to use but heard talk of it) or you could line the inside with fire brick. If you double line it I would still look at getting some firebrick for the bottom save your bottom metal.

its gonna have a pullout ash tray and the coals will be on the fire grate, was thinking of the firebrick just didnt know how well they would stay in place when driving hitting bumps.

You could lay them in the bottom and run some 1/2'' rod across the top of them and weld the end to the side to hold them down, just a thought.

Since its rained everyday this week after work i havnt been able to work on the firebox and have had time to think about it. im gonna add a 1/4 inch plate wall to the inside of the fire box with a 1" gap between the 1/4 and the 3/16th and insulate it. Grandpa use to say "Boy...if your gonna do it DO IT RIGHT" Wink .

I need to gather up some more steel for the inside of the firebox so i probally wont get to work on it till this weekend, on the bright side my door came in today Very Happy , its 13" tall by 20 1/2" wide so i guess ill make my opening about 1 1/2" smaller that will give me 3/4" overlap all the way around, heres a pic Cool

Hey KAM i was reading another post, and i saw where someone mentioned something about ceramic, which made the lightbulb go off in my head, lol, ceramic has an extremely high heat resistance, i could line my firebox with it, what yah think.

I cant say, I would think thin fire brick would be better. The ceramic could withstand the heat but will it insulate as well.

I threw the ceramic idea out the window after doing my research and what it would take to install it, spent half the day getting steel and a few other items and now its to hot outside to work, so gonna get started on it this evening.
