Nice work. You will figure it all out after a while. I saw my best friend in your picture. The grinder! lol Like the counter weights also.

Keep up the good work.


purplewg thanks, didn't really mind the high temp on the first burn, going to do some tweaks on the door air intake and try again this weekend. yes I have a love hate relationship with that grinder, love the work it can do, hate that I have to do it. Concrete blocks arenít just for building walls anymore.

Thanks for the pics. I am trying to figure out how to let the smoke and heat into my cook chamber.

What I was referring to was the Classic Mako Site. Are you a member?

No I am not a member but I do have the site saved as a favorite on my computer there are some very cool and informative restoration projects on there for the older mako owners, here are a few pics of mine.

Hey guys just a few more picís of my ongoing never ending
Smoker build, shout out to watchado liked his door hinge
Mounts so I cut mine off and copied his, and I must say
They work and look great, also added the Ĺ inch pipe
fittings in the door for the thermometers, this weekend
hoping to start my door counter weight getting tired of
lifting that heavy sucker.

Well till next time
232mako

Howdy everyone just a few more pictures
Of the cooker build, went with a different
Air damper on front door from my earlier post
It was easier to build and operate a win, win!!
Also got my 4ĒX2 Ĺí smoke stacks welded on so
Itís starting to look like a cooker, still playing
With the door counter weight, may go with a cable and
Pulley system like I saw on one of K.A.MíS builds
Or just put door mounted system itís still up in the air.

232mako, congrats to your son on his AJ that's a Hoss, I miss deep water fishing Debbie and I get our fix in the Bays and at the Jetties now. Very Happy Nice work on the hinge replacement, Are you going to weld out the top strap or leave it stitch welded? I will be watching for more updates and pics. Very Happy

Thanks K.A.M he was pretty proud of that fish it took him around 35 min. to get it to the boat, the expression on his says it all. know what you mean still like fishing for spot tails and trout on light tackle. If it leeks heat and smoke when I fire it up again then I will go ahead and weld it.

Take Care

Howdy everyone: took a break to remind myself why
I am building my new smoker, I went to my local
butcher and got two racks of spare ribs and two
baby backs, took one rack to my mothers for dinner
and the rest to work for my coworkers. Very Happy

Howdy everyone just thought I would update my cooker build with a few pictures of my progress got the diamond plate welded on the trailer and most of the gas lines run, I welded 1 in. elec. conduit down the center of the trailer to protect the gas line and used Ĺ in. conduit hangers to run the line on the frame, all the frame rails and the under side of the trailer were primed and painted before the D-plate was welded on, on the inside of the cooker is my SS heat diffuser plates still need to cut or drill the slots in it but it is coming along nicely, hope to get all the gas lines finished this weekend, and start on that dang door counter weight.

Till next time

I'm thinking a large offset would make a mighty fine bow ornament... Yes sir, the only thing it's missing is a smoker...
