Well going into my Second week of vacation I figured that I would post some pictures and see what everyone thought of my progress. It is a 250 gal propane tank the fire box is 24x24x34. I was finally able to get the doors open today and they did not move on me any.

Thanks KAM I am working on the smoke stack today I'm using 5 inch square tubing I'm trying to figure out how to put a damper in. I finally figured it out and have the smoke stack attached. Now just to get the R/F plate started. Then all I will have to do is work on the racks and the door handles, and do some work on the nose of the smoker before I send it off to have it sand blasted so that I can get some paint on it.

Well I have still been doing a little work on getting some of the smaller pieces lined up for my smoker. I got to talk a friend and found out that his buddy just got to getting some work done on his plasma table. I ask him about making me some handle hangers and some cleaner hinges for my smoker. this is what he has come up with for me I think that will really set off the smoker.

Ya, he did great work. he has a plasma table that can cut up to 1.25" it does a great job and I could not complain about the price of everything, design and cutting it all out for $50 I wish that I would not have wasted the time making the set of hinges that I put on and now have to cut off.

Finally got a little more work done on the smoker this past week. I got the center channel installed and the plates welded in. Now just to start on the racks, for the cook chamber and for the firebox.
