Postby Americana Cookers » Fri Mar 09, 2012 8:44 pm

Ok, after looking through alot of the posts I realize that my pit isnt near as elaborate as some of your's out there @brentski (very nice pit by the way!). But with the tank and trailer given to me I tried to stay as cheap as I could but still tried to keep some good quality work in! Plus Im still coming up with ideas on things to add. So if any one has any ideas please feel free to let me know. Hope you enjoy.

Great looking Pit! That surface above the fire box would make one heck of a cooking surface or a location for an upright warming oven
