    You should have it now . . .

    I'm trying to create a list of features & any pictures I can get . . .

    Wouldn't it be great to put together a pipeliners "Coffee Table" book . . .

    One of the few jobs they can't send to China or India . . . :-)

    P.S. I'm not a welder by trade, strictly an amateur hobbyist with limited MIG skills . . . Have stick, but welds look pretty rough . . .

    Steve

    P.S. Your PM box is full, you can not recieve any more . . .

    My goal is to make the ultimate "Welders Rig BBQ Grill" . . . . .

    I have seen seen some with plate ends, some with "bull nose" cap ends . . .

    I intend to keep it pure "welders" ie . . . using grinding disk bodies for vent covers, welder's hammer for handle, etc . . .

    Tailgating is really big down here in Cajun country . . . . LSU & The Saints . . .

    So any ideas, enhancements or suggestions are surly welcome . . .

    Thanks

    Now this is my kind of post. Absolutely doggone right. As long as one has fun designing it, scrounging materials, building it, cooking up some tasty meat, drinking a few beverages, and showing it off to friends and anyone else who will listen.........who cares what it looks like.

    I can not see how anyone who spends too much on a mass produced, foreign made cheapo could ever get the same level of satisfaction.

    Here are a couple of pits inspired by rig welder pits. Both are hitch receiver attachments,
    1st is a 10" sch10 SSx16" w/SS shaker screen grill, rig telescopes on 2" in 2.5" sq tube, both 3/16"wt. for travel to and from the Texans games, has a 20" head w/SS expanded grill riding on a 1" SS threaded stock.

    2nd is a similar pit for the BIL while he is in the field, used 10"x1/4" tube, is a take down unit and rides in the bed.

    My pride is a scrapped SS Dr.Pepper 55gal drum w/1/4"and 3/8"SS tubing grill.

    I have others, so not to clutter up the thread, nuff said.

    Good luck

    Very nice Vitler!! I'd do a number of things different with mine, but for now I guess I won't argue with results. Besides, if I start another one now, I'll probably have one unhappy wife!!!!

    Here's a BBQ/ smoker that I built in my spare time. It's made from a 120 gal air tank, 1/4" plate steel from a demolition company. I have about $150 into it. I had a 125lb pig cook in it over the summer. Watch for more of my projects. Keep it simple and cook it slow. Here are the pics

    I have built one out of a piece of 12" diameter pipe that is 20" long and i used 4 way lug wrenches for legs. I used 1/4 " plate to cap the ends. I used a wrap around and took 1/4 of the circumfrence and left about 3 inches on each side and cut it out for my door. It works pretty good. I will take pictures of it next chance i get and post it.

    This is what i am currently working on. it should look alot better after i get the paint/coating sandblasted off.
