Debbie and I put the gasket on the door this evening as well. Tomorrow it is brakes and lights. :D

Brother Kevin, the rig rocks! i am more impressed with the passion with which it was built. Rarely is something built with so much perfection. Nothing on this build just happened, i can testify. you just don't see that often. Truely impressive my friend! :cheers:

The pictures don't do it justice. There is an incredible attn to detail, that is overlooked unless you really look at the pics. The consistency of the welds, the tight fit around the openings, the cross bars on the fire box door, the small things that really show a commitment to skill and patience.

Hands down one of the best builds I have ever seen. I am in awe of your craftsmanship.

Wow, KAM!! That is impressive. There are sure to be plenty of great cooks coming off that rig. Wish I knew how to weld.

That is one of the best looking rigs that I have seen around. even looking at the websites of guys that do it for a living.
I also like the team name :D

Good luck with it and maye I too can see it live and in action somewhere.

Here are some seasoning pics and some cooks along with more work on the cooker trailer.
I have been really busy and seasoning and work have kinda been mixed in together.
The first cook was a rack of ribs and a chicken.

The grill was seasoned and chicken was cooked.

The work continues.
I got the gutter installed the other day.

Yesterday while Debbie monitored the brisket I started piping the cook stove burners and working on the sink area.
