    Here's a pic of my first real welding project. It's a vertical BBQ smoker. It is 6' tall, 30" wide, and 20" deep. It has a fire box that is 20" square. The pics aren't close ups because they were taken at a cook-off. Will try to get close ups soon. First pic is of the inside. Second pic the smoker is in the background.

    Looks nice. We built one on a small trailer. Includes a skewer that can be rotated using either 110 or 12 volt power. I will try to grab some pics the next time we use it.

    Very small weld project. A line spool holder. Spring tension keeps the spool from unrolling. Another spring holds the end of the line until you need to pull more off the spool. This system works great and cost less than those bought on the web.

    This was the first project that I have done. Not much but it is a beginning!:)

  6. Ssouth, can you post some more pics please, been wanting to build my own.

    A buddy took a brinkman and added propane burners to the fire box, I am thinking similar, but I want to make from scratch.

    A must add to that smoker is a 5" X 24" exhaust stack from a tractor trailer for the cooking fumes to come out of...if you can afford it make duals comming off the top !:angel:
