Ok, I'm dying to know - you built the racks flat, how did they sit on the angles we put in??

One side appears to widen a little in the back, I think they lean back a touch in respect to the rest of it. But they fit and sit flat to each other. I cheated the legs ever so slightly to bring the racks back to level without making everything else look out.

Obviously it looks that way because your rack narrows in the back...

We planned it that way. This way your racks won't slide out on their own.

Of course they do! Brian and I put them in, would you expect anything less??

Don’t go simple now. Butterfly is cooler and more work.
But thinking about it, I could be made simple too, I guess. And the handle sticking out will be less likely to hit your knee when out.

I guess it depends on what your preference are. I guess you could put the butterfly rod in on a 120 degree angle so the handle will come out the top of the tank for easy reach.

It's going to have something. Wether or not I set it and forget it doesn't matter. I've decided on a slide gate.

These are pictures of the slide gate between the fire box and the smoke chamber. I will make some sort of linkage to control it.

This is the damper for the chimney. Not much to say there.
