    Here's the weekends progress
    .


    I got the main frame attached and welded on




    Added the insulation to the bottom of the chamber and got my drain pipe welded in





    Floor plate is welded in along with the transfer tube cutout. I recessed the transfer tube into the floor like this to minimize the amount of lost room inside. I will also put insulation on the underside too to insulate the fire box too.




    Here's a view of the tabs I mentioned earlier the hot smoke will travel up the left and right sides, down through the chamber and the exhaust will go back up the center of the chute. It will be about the same on the other side.

    Sorry it's been so long since the last update but it's been a long busy season I've done more traveling than any person should do in 1 season. I haven't had the time to dget a whole lot of work done.

    I got the top in place and I did get the exhaust put in place as well.






    After a few months of looking at it and dry fitting different parts I realized that this placement of the exhaust won't work, because the upper cross part is about 4" tall it will block access to the area behind it so I will only be able to use about 6" of the top rack. Which might be ok because it will be big enough that I should have enough room that I may not need it. But it's early enough in the build that If I don't fix it I know it will drive me nuts later. So next I'll have to cut it off and relocate it against the back wall.

    Thanks for looking!

    Got some work done on the smoker this week.



    I got the exhaust tube cut out and relocated to the back of the cabinet. The exhaust will pick up on the lower left and right side of the cabinet, it will go up and out through the top left side corner.





    I also got the left side inner wall into place. I put in a steel tube with some tees so that I can route my probes through the inner walls and down into the base where my stoker unit will be mounted. I can also plug the holes that are not being used.

    Here's an inside look at how I set up to run my probes.





    Got the floor plates in angled back towards the drain and the drain pipe cut to height.

    This was a busy and productive weekend.




    I got both walls and the back wall in place. I got it welded most of the way around before running out of wire so work got stopped prematurely. Since I was out of wire I started grinding down the welds on the face to get it ready for the door and prepping the rest of it for the outer skin.





    I got the rails for the main racks in place spaced about 6" apart I May go back and put in another set in-between these to make them 3" apart .





    Here's the overall view of where I'm at.

    I insulated and closed off the chute.








    I ground down all welds so it's all got a flush sealing surface for the door.






    I insulated the firebox with 4" of roxul and added 2" angle to provide support where the face that the door will seal up against



    I used " plate to cover and seal the firebox

    Thanks PigCicles, that's the plan, to have it for years.

    I just need doors and skins and it will be ready to burn. Goal is to have it done by memorial day weekend.
