Life has been pretty busy but yesterday I had time today to get the doors mounted on the cooker. I went with a newer style hinge on this cooker that a friend of mine used on his build.

New to the forum scene. But I got this far with no help.

I am starting a huge project and looking for any help I can get.
I run the weld shop a Washington Family Ranch. A Younglife camp. I have set sail on building a BBQ trailer that will feed up to 400 kids with an occasional 800 guest event. I have acquired a 1000 gal propane tank and a set of axles. This will be from the ground up pit.

Plans, pictures, suggestions, ideas, all welcome. I want to get this done right. I have built other small smokers, and even a tar kettle for road maintenance. So the idea of making my own burners and trailer lay out. Is not the hard part. I want the fire box and the tank and the shelving to work to its best ability.

Am I barking up the right tree, thanks for any help that you may have.

Yesterday I installed the 2" drain, finished the cooking grates, finished the firebox door and the exhaust cap.
Here is the 2" drain.

Looking good. I decided to follow your design for the firebox damper. Working on the door latch today.
