It had to be done, so it has been started

The time came that it had to be done!  The scraps and pieces laying about..... a perfectly good welder with some time... and the dream would reshape the iron into something WONDERFUL!

A picture abstract of a bbally design!





The first weld seam.... when the arc comes to the metal the beast that was laying in pieces starts to take shape!










Slowly it becomes recognized as something to put fire to food!















Stay tuned in..... she leaves for the powder coater next week and I begin the trailer she will rest on... complete with dutch oven clam shell and all the trimmings!

'til we talk again, do a project the temperature is perfect!

I saw that too. Although I have seen designs with stacks on either end.....both ends that is.


Either way, nice project.

Both ends with a center fire box...Yes... "Smoke Stacks' on Both ends with a single fire box mounted either to the left or to the right???? Please share your souce (magazines, books, websites, etc) where you have seen this design....This is interesting to me!

Thanks In Advance!!!

Probobly was a center mount. It wouldn't be difficult to move that stack over.
