Great build,neat ideas!But I see one thing you may wish you would of done,where you store your table you may want to place something beteewn the table and the road;gravel,mud,tar will get all over that table and will never come clean again.

joshsheff1 - No problem man I'm going to be cookin this weekend at the house, give me a ring.

BluzQue - Thanks, D is doing a great job.

k.a.m I'll post "action" pics this weekend. WOOT! Laughing

Uncle John - you and me both. I'm like a kid on Christmas morning !!! Can't wait.

Deputy - Thanks bud. I'll need to cruise down to your neck of the woods and we can do a cook for your crew!

daddywoofdawg - Good catch. That can be a mod, I'm sure D will have an Ace up his sleeve. I'm no metal worker but a thin piece of Plate might do the trick ... hmmm

Oh did I mention that I get to bring it home TODAY Shocked Laughing

Outstanding!
It's been a long journey but, you certainly have something to be proud of. That is one bad azz and interesting cooker.
Looks like it functions pretty darn good too.
Congratulations on a job well done. I look forward to seeing posts of your cooks in the future.

Whew, I'm glad it cooks OK.

Chuck and k.a.m., nothing tops compliments from you two. Thanks.

Uncle John, Thanks. It was a long and fun journey.

Deputy, Thanks

daddywoofdawg, Thanks. That bottom rack will hold two tables so maybe only the bottom one will get dirty. We really could not find a better place for them.

Jarhead, Thanks. I hope I did the USMC proud.

Mister Bob, Thanks.

Tom C, Thanks. It's great honor to honor our Marines.

roscoe1960, Thanks. Stel really was with me every step of the way, well, except when he said "I don't know if I really want eagles on the doors".

Tombigbeeriverdawg, Thanks.

slacker, Thanks.

jeepdad, Thanks. I never did see any Devil Dog pics. Now you have me wondering.

hatfam, Thanks. I always wonder about those steamers too. I figure if it didn't explode they're OK. I do make then thinner on the back, just in case.

Cat797, Thanks. Yes that nipple on the firebox is for a stoker.

Stel, Great looking first cook. Thanks again.
