Latest picture, had a cook up for the work mates last friday which went well.

Another weekend of work should hopefully see it finished except for maybe the paint job.

Thanks Beaver, im pretty happy with how it looks, i love building things even after 30 years as a boilermaker.

The one thing i would not do again is the insulation on the firebox. It added a lot of extra weight to the build without any real benefits, the outer skin on the box gets very hot but not skin melting hot which is good. The only other benefit may be more efficient use of wood but without a non insulated box to compare it with i can only speculate.
The cook up i had last friday used 2 and half logs approximately 250mm dia by 400 long, that gave me around 5 hours at 120-150 degrees. Im looking forward to getting the smoker home and experimenting with it.

it reduces the fuel usage, removes issues when it rains and also saves the paint.
I do recommend insulated where possible
