Re: finally got to do some work on my 250gal smoker build.

guys thank you very much for all you kind words. It has been a great build. I wouldnt have changed a thing.I have been stress free just working on it. I hope to be able to cook and see peoples faces when they eat my bbq. That is the most humbling feeling. Thank you agian and hope you enjoy the Q-view coming up. My frist gig is a cookoff on Feb 19-20. I will have to make some practice runs staring now. Today I got the temp up to 350 and held it for a couple of hours. The paint held tight the only thing was the firebox. The paint on the side pealed a little but overall I had he guys next door come by and look.

I'd paint the rims gloss black. Everyone has chrome.
Nice job man!
