The BBQ Smoker, oh so close

(clockwise from top left)

1. Both of the barrels have had their paint stripped and have received some extra internal bracing to keep them from twisting while the doors are open.

2. Inside detail of the right-side barrel showing the stove pipe and bracing. I'll be adding a plate above this to keep drippings from gathering in the right-angle bend.

3. Underside detail of the barrel showing the pipe exit. I still need to cut the holes in the firebox where the pipes will interface.

I'm shooting to test fire this baby next weekend. This will be a dry run just to check for airflow, leaks, design flaws, etc. If all goes well, I'll get the last tweaks done and get 'er painted in the next couple weeks. Meaty meat time, here we come!
