I checked with insurance and stuff on lending a car in the US. oops Embarassed. We will just rent a car at the airport. The knife in the pic is up for sale, just send me a pm and I will give you the specs.
My trailer parts has still not arrived so I am building another smoker, need the practice Very Happy. Main chamber 40" and an 20"X20"X36" upright box. I did not have a 60" pipe so I cut a piece in half and welded it on.

Working in a confined space, but loving it Very Happy
I used the same type of wheels as the last smoker, they are pure 4wd. I took a couple of extra laps around the lawn just to enjoy the moment.

Door cut. I found a shop that are willing to help me out with cold rolling plates. NO tension in them when cutting the doors! Everything stays in place and no strange ping or tweak sounds while cutting Very Happy

Time to get things back to "normal". The building continues tomorrow. It`s been hectic over here lately, but WE WILL NOT LET TERROR BEAT US DOWN!

I had my safety glasses on actually, but they are pure crap Very Happy,
no point in saving a few bucks on safety. I went and got some heavy duty goggles so, lesson learned (again).

Jan, sorry to here about the eye injury I know all about them. Over the years two removed with laser and I lost count of the ones plucked but it sure feels good when there out. I get them with glasses and full face shields, I guess I am the unlucky one.Laughing
You need to go back to the doc he forgot some metal stuck in your earlobes man.RazzLaughing
My prayers go out to all the families over there that have lost loved ones that was tragic news.

Your builds look great!

I have a question about your first build you posted with your insulated firebox. Do you have any pictures of the insulating process or steps you took in doing it? What type of insulation did you use? I love how clean the fit and finish of your firebox is.

Keep up the good work I cant wait to see this big one finished!

Thanks! Sorry, I forgot to take pictures of the process. I promise to behave better next time Smile
The insulation is, I guess, the same stuff you get over there. White, looks like regular wall insulation. It can take 2100F before breaking down.

bam: Thanks. Let`s see some sammich then Laughing

Nice work. Sorry about the eye also. Whenever I get to messing with metal I try to mind myself the same as when I get on the bike, "Don't do stupid stuff". I try to grab eye protection, most times.

Back into building smokers. I got really tired of the one with the upright box + I had to build one for a friend. I got a lot of "leftover" steel after cutting plates for cold rolling so I figured I`d just build a square smoker. I am adding a warmer to it, don`t want to waste good steel. I am working in a very confined space ( just had to say that again) and it is really getting dark up here now, but I am loving it! Got all the parts for my big trailer now so I just have to finish the ones I got going to make space. Very Happy







Firebox coming along.

Firebox welded on.I put the lid on it and it fits like a glove! Very Happy
