Got the second set of walls done and welded
Image
This is what the 1" smoke gap looks like on the sides
Image
Here is where I left off... build calls for 7" front plate. . But man, does it looks too tall

In probably going to get hotel water pans for the bottom and this seems too tall to get the pan or pans out. The build in following has this and the doors align with the measurements, so going to sleep on it before I decide and weld this plate on than move on to the doors
Suggestions welcome around this issue:grin:

dont want it to be considered advertising for anyone, and not sure of the rules, but I think sharing links may be frown upon- so I will PM you and anyone else can PM to ask.

im thinking (2) 1/1/4'' ball valves for the sides in regards to air intake..y'all think that will be enough?

so the 1 1/4 valves are just for air intake? and I'm wondering why the bottom plate is so tall.
But you sure did a good job on this one and thanks for sharing with us

Got the latches on ebay for about 40 for both sets. The buyer I got them from had a crazy shipping charge, so I Emailed and he gave me a lower cost around 10 bux

JBROOKS3 cut me a deal on the powdercoat, so you'll have to ask him or a local shop.

Yes, I figured two would be needed since it's larger. Wanted enough air without having to open the door. So far, seems to be working out.

That was a quick, sweet, build.

If a spiral ham convention comes to town, I know who they need to call :D

So heat/smoke only travels up the rear wall in this design?
