48" Octagon Smoker Build

Postby TXAGTEACHER » Mon Dec 28, 2015 4:03 pm

My students are currently building a BBQ Pit to take to competition in the spring. It is a 48" long, 24" wide octagon with a fire box that will also have an opening lid to be able to sear or cook steaks. Here are a few pictures of the current progress. There will be plenty more to come!
