    Thanks Kev. I'll see what he can get it for and go from there. Getting it here from Tulsa might be "prohibitive". I don't have the sizes handy but it works out to about 7 sq. ft. of cooking area with an upper and lower.

    I could have lit off the ol' Lincoln buzzbox but it was so much easier to let him do it. And it looks SO much nicer. All seams are welded inside and out.
    The door is a barrel wood stove door assembly. I will install it.
    Probably tomorrow I will take the tank over to him and we will cut it and mount the firebox and exhaust stack. Then it gets mounted on it's trailer or wagon, call it whatever.
    He is checking on stainless expanded metal for the cooking grates for me. That will hurt!
    The firebox is sitting in the bed of my 3/4 ton Silverado. He put it there with a forklift and it lowered the truck down "a bit". All 1/2" steel plate and it is HEAVY. 16" square by 21" deep.
    More as it progresses.
    Great idea for the door Mike. Where did you get it?

    Also, where did you get the cart?

    How much expanded metal do you need? I've got a 4x8 sheet of 304SS in my back yard with one piece already cut out of it (approx. 12" x 24"). I need to save a bit back for a drum, too.
    Curt's right. I do have use for some SS exp metal. What weight is it?....Wait, the fog isa clearing...didn't you show me a piece of that once before?

    Tim, I'm not sure of the weight, nor if I ever happened to show it to you. If I'm not mistaken, it can be seen leaning against my fence as I was showing pics of my new smoker.

    Anyway, stop by and take a look at it if you'd like. How big of a piece were you needing?

    I'm pretty sure you showed it to me. Didn't you say you picked it up as scrap from a boiler job you were on?

    I need a peice for the fire grate in my Charbroil. Also would like to build a c'coal basket for a drum as well.

    Tim, that piece you're talking about is more like chicken wire (actually #2). What I've got here now is a piece that is bona fide expanded metal. 304 stainless steel, too. With what you're wanting to do, and my little project, I think we may have enough to do it all. I know of about 10 more sheets of this stuff that I think I could have with a little persuasion. I'll work on that.

    Look in this picture...


    Leaning on the fence is the piece I'm talking about. Also, note the shelf on the smoker. It's the same material.

    If you need me to take measurements, I'd be happy to.

    Got the barrel stove kit at Tractor Supply, $34. Used the door assembly, now have a set of legs and stack outlet with damper for a future project.
    I found the cart on CraigsListKC, cheap. Had it sandblasted. Fellow who had it told me it originally had a large welder on it that was used for repair & maintenence around a local plant. It is not roadworthy.
