Thanks me too. I hoped to have it done by this weekend, but I don't think that'll happen. I unexpectedly have to deliver a load of hay and that''s 2 days gone.

that looks sweet so far. I just built a 120 gallon RF. on your fire box I would put the intake vents low on both sides. I would also make a charcoal/wood bow for inside the firebox that slides out, it makes it easy to fill or empty.

Thanks guys.
No the vent isn't galvanized. It's mild steel.

Thanks for the input, I was thinking how/where the vent/s were going to go. I was planning the vent on the bottom of the door.
I planed on making a rack/bow that would sit about 3" of off the bottom. Now you've got me thinking on a slide out feature.

Thank you all.
JB that's the size the calculator figures came to and a couple inches extra.
I figured you can always cut some off if needed it's easier than adding to it.
TQ thanks and yeah, I dreamt about cookin on it last night. Lol

Just an update here.
Going to pick up the rest of the metal for the cooking grate, firebox grate and lower shelf today.
With any luck, my boy and I will get this all welded up tomorrow and get this thing painted sometime next week.

I can't wait to get to season this smoker and get a good cook going!!

Just checkin in. It is really coming together and is gonna cook great. I'm sure you have already considered some kind of bracing on the legs - In my experience some angle iron and an expanded metal shelf will stiffen it right up plus you can stack a couple splits next to the firebox to pre-heat before adding to the fire.

Edit: wish you could deliver hay to Florida; that's my job next week - gettin round bales in the pole barn for the winter.
