I tried to sandblast it but my compressor wasn't big enough to keep up. So I used my grinder and wire wheel. Blew it off with air and wiped it down. I used Rustoleum high heat BBQ paint. Just plain BBQ Black. I painted most of it with my paint gun till the compressor finally crapped out then went back over the whole thing with a foam roller.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I put a lot of heart into this build because I want it to be a family heirloom. Not bad for a four month build only working on it a few hour in the evenings and on weekends. I'm fixing to start on a build for my stepdad. My mom passed 3 weeks ago and he's having a pretty tough time with it. He's been wanting a cooker for a long time and I think I'm going to do something special on this next one for him. Its going to be a 24x36 reverse flow offset.

A smoker and food is an excellent way to put in time. More importantly, he will need a list of people to give meat to so he can keep smoking more....and the gratitude is self-healing as well.

Thanks for the info on the paint.

Did my first cook yesterday. Small 8 pound brisket. No my type, I like 12 -14 pounders. But I didn't buy it. Cooker did awesome. Real easy on fuel.

Too funny....didn’t even know you could buy an 8 pound brisket....imagine they cook a lot faster than the big ones.

What are the deminsions of the fire box? Also what is the height of the main cooking chamber? Is the round pipe on the bottom necessary or could you leave it square with success? I’m gonna do a very similar build but that 24 in pipe is huge and I don’t have the equipment to move a big piece of it.

Ill have to measure it tonight. The firebox is insulated so I dont remember exact dimensions. I want to say outside is 26 wide, 26 tall, 25 long.
The main chamber is 24 inches without the hip roof. Ibdont really have an answer for the pipe but I got this design from a Shirley Fabrication cooker. I'm sure a completely square one is going to be ALOT of plate. Plus with the .375 wall pipe it has better heat retension.
