Hi there I'm building myself a grill with firebox. SMAW only.
I found this to be the best forum on grills so I decided to post some pictures and describe my build.
With the cost of materials these days I did not want any part of the $20 propane tank to be waste.
I want to mostly cook for a family and want to be able to cook a whole bunch to feed us. I also want to make the grill light enough to mount on my pickuptruck's bumper for easy transport.

I began by cutting the tank 1/3 to make the off-set firebox. Then cut my plate to size.


Once I welded them together, I trimmed the excess. The doors got drawn in after that


Make the doors :


Build the racks: Fit like a PRO

Good start to your rig there, CarbedNotch!

I am wondering if you have a large enough opening between the firebox and the cooking chamber with those two pipes - they seem small for the size of the rig.

On the up side, you can give it a try for a couple of cooks and if you find you're not getting enough heat you can always cut out the two pipes and make the opening larger...

Cheers

CarbedNotch, I just noticed you changed up your fire box to cooker openings. Is that so you can use the fire box more effectively as a grill when you want to?

Exactly. The firebox is far from done. It will have its own exhaust pipe just to give you more of an idea. Thanks for the complements.

I am continually impressed by the talent, ingenuity and elbow grease exhibited by you denizens of the Smoke Ring. I can think of nothing else to say but a big hearty....WOW! You all have lit the fire in me to try and build a smoker. Thank you very much(my wife might want to say something else but when she tastes the end product she will realize her folly in doubting your inspiration)
