WOW! That pit came out amazing! Thanks for sharing the whole process from start to finish. You should to be proud of yourself k.a.m. knowing that you fabricated it yourself. It's one thing to admire something like that from from afar, but yet quite another to know that YOU built it. I sure would like to know how it cooks. I am sure you already stocked up on the rolled biscuits you are going to use when you to chart that thing out during the seasoning.

I noticed that the inside was sandblasted and that the door was insulated.

I'm rebuilding my trailer pit and had among many other things, had my firebox rebuilt. The inner walls were starting to bow inward from the heat and it was getting tough to get the fire grates out, so when it was rebuilt, I had angle iron supports welded between the plates to prevent it happening in the future. Axles are being put on as I write this. Tell me your opinion or thought process on doing the door please. Was it for fuel economy, is it part of the insulated firebox "system", pros & cons of a insulated door? My door wasn't originally insulated but am thinking of do it also.

The pit will be sandblasted inside/out and then painted. I have the high temp paint for the burner up front, Santa Maria grill, main chamber and fire box. Inside will not be painted, just season everything (grills, tuning plates and inside walls) real good with oil, smoke and heat. The trailer will be primed and shot with regular paint. Question, do you recommend the "hot" items be primed before paint and if so with what?

Thanks,
Mark

My door is not insulated Mark. I box the outer edge with 1.5" x 3/8" flat bar to keep the door in check you can see pics of it earlier on in my posts. When possible I always prefer the cooker primed with inorganic zinc primer. DTM paint is fine and all but after a while it starts to wear.

Yesterday I was able to get the roof installed on Little Mama.
The roof getting attached.

Then the first wing.

Last screws on the right wing.

I am happy with the end result she folds up like Bahama Mama with no loose parts.
