New pit done except for paint.

Got everything finished this morning now all I have to do is paint it this week and will fire it up next weekend for its first cook.

Here is a link to the build pics.

Finally... Wes, I've been waiting on finished pics for weeks (months it seems). Looks great. =D> =D> =D>

Joker, I'm first on the list. But it would be hard for Wes to actually sell his pit as a business venture because it uses Stump's Smokers' gravity feed design. I'm sure Joby (from Stumps, who checks our site almost every morning) would have a lawyer friend that might want to talk to him. Now he could make them for friends at a small profit to cover his time (hint, hint).

No way would I want to go into the business of making these things. There is alot of time involved in a project like this, after figureing out my time and materials I probably didn't save anything by building it myself. I just did it because I wanted to try and see if I could. I did change some things around on it to better suit my needs. Plus by building it myself I was able to get my new mig welder and some other tools I was wanting.

I'm not kidding either, the pipe and some of those mud flaps with the neked ladies on 'em, that would be too cool
If I made a smoker like that it would catch attention for sure

Leave the pipe, that is
