Almost finished 60 Gallon Patio

Postby bswisher » January 12th, 2018, 2:32 pm

Well, thanks to Big T, Pete Mazz, AJFoxy, and a few others I have just about got this thing finished. Still need to add some expanded metal on the 2 extra shelves I framed up and add my FB vent and do something with the bottom of the cart. I went ahead and got her painted with a couple of coats or Rustoleum High Heat Satin. The build couldn't have gone any better and was pretty easy thanks to you guys pointing me in the right direction.

Thanks again fellas.

I used some 14ga and a couple old pushrods to make my damper and control.

I went ahead and built a firebox basket to make it easier to load

I also used some expanded metal and closed the ends off on the bottom rack so noting falls down into the baffle plate gap etc.

I did 2 slide out grates.

Yep, that is a very neat build. Nicely done.

Thanks guys, appreciate it. Got bored yesterday while doing some pulled pork so I added cup holders. lol It cooks like a dream, 12 hour cook and used about 10lbs of Royal Oak lump and a bag of Apple chunks. Guessing the chunks were 5lbs +-. Does that sound about right for a smaller smoker like this? temp really never varied more than maybe 10 degrees all day.

I would say that fuel consumption is amazing. Mine probably uses 25# of oak and a chimney of charcoal to begin. I really only use sticks but for an Offset RF that’s great.
