I get bbq envy everytime I come in this section. Your cooker is awsome! I would totally put a thich cutting board across the front and screw a bottle opener to it, just in case.

Nice cutting work. Should work well.
Had a garge door spring let go right over my head when I was loading big bore ammo. Had to go change my clothes. I thought I blew up the garage. LOL

I hear you. That is why we quit naming the pigs, cows and chickens when I was a kid. I just seemed wrong to know your dinner.

You say your new cooker....did YOU just make it, or did you buy it already made? It looks like it's cooked quite a few times since made.....how's it cook?

What specifically did those hinge springs come off of?...pretty cool idea!

On the front of the rig.....I'd put a seperate firebox and get the fire OUT of the cooker and avoid flare ups and have better temp control.
