Thanks! The fire did take off most of the outside paint. Didn't build a huge fire but used a leaf blower to speed up the process and get it going pretty good. After about 15 minutes of increased airflow all around whatever was left was easily take off in a few minutes by the pressure washer...luckily there was no dreaded red liner so it was a simple process.

Sorry to tease...I have a few shots from my first cook this weekend...haven't had a chance to get them uploaded yet...soon though!

I will admit the only parts of welding I took part in was connecting the ground (is that what it's called? ) a few times and holding things in place and being told not to breathe until it was tacked. No clue what type of welder we used. The old man is a decent welder and he had trouble with burning holes and some rough looking welds. I only know this because of the choice words used after the welding noise stopped. I was just going to salvage and old gas grill frame with the side tables and set the drum in the middle because that is the limit of my mechanical abilities...when you can do that sort of thing you tend to take on bigger projects.

Nothing wrong with having two. I got my first cook in on Sunday and there are already a few drips and smudges...only more to come!

Thanks for looking and for the comments. I love this site and all the ideas and information. Now that I have the equipment in place I will try to contribute some of my meager offerings!

Finally got a minute to upload a few photos from the initial run. Didn't get a ton of pics or any of the food in the cooking process but I did get before and after...

A chuck roast, hunk of brisket flat, and two fatties.



Finished brisket. Soaked it in some RC overnight. Rubbed with some salt, pepper, and some other spices I thought sounded good. Turned out OK. Not too dry but not super juicy either. Cooked to ~165*, foiled to 205*, then rested. This is my 2nd attempt at brisket...way better than the 1st, still need to dial it in though.





Didn't get the chuck roast before I pulled it. Soaked it the night before in Cherry Dr. Pepper, just added a little salt & pepper for spices. Cooked on Sunday, had the chuck roast on Monday night. Left it whole when it came off at ~200*. Got home from work and threw it in the crock pot with some beef broth, Worcestershire, and a Leinenkugel's Creamy Dark (which I don't care to drink..but got stuck with three in the winter sampler pack...worked good for this) let it get warm up and then pulled it. Add some pepperjack cheese with a little peppered-vinegar sauce I made....mmmmm mmmm mmmm farkin' delicious!





The fatties didn't make it to their photo op...but they served there purpose!

I still have a lot to learn before I make stuff at the level I've seen here, but I guess it's a start! All the info here has eased my learning curve greatly...much appreciated!
