Just what I have been looking for. Do you have a materials list and plans?
Here's the nearly finished product. I added a 2 foot tall 4" stack for more air draw and drilled a 4 inch hole on the left side of the firebox. It works better than I ever expected. Build the fire hot and fast and the smoker will sit at 215 degrees for about 2 hrs before needing more wood! I love it! Thx sole lord. Several of my friends want to build one and I sent them your link. You deserve lots of credit for my smoker/grill
I also had to build a plate and firebrick partition between the fire box and grill top. I was losing too much heat and built the partitiion level with the top of the flue. That did the trick
Thank you Stormy!
Thank you everyone for all your nice comments. I hope any and all projects of yours turn out like you dreamed. Stay inspired and keep sharing.Update: I replaced the car jack with a scissor type motorcycle jack. I then went to the junk yard and found a electric window motor. Acquired a 12v motorcycle battery and solar battery tender from Harbor Freight. A two way switch. My fire basket is now operated from a switch.I never thought posting this would have drawn the attention that it has. I just wanted to share this project was all. Thank you very much everyone!
Thank you Mack!
It's just sitting there with a bead of caulking around it
