Default BBQ Grill for a steak or two

Well here is a few pics to start with. And a story to go with it. I just started a new job a little over six mo ago. Sometime around the third week my superviser came back and said they needed me to finish there bbq. I looked it over and decided That no amount of money or time would help the bbq. To many people had put there 2 cents in on it. So I asked if they wanted a bbq that they could cook on or looked good or do both. They said both so I asked if I could start from scrach. In about an hr they came back and siad yes go at it. So here it is. It's made of 11ga steel, 10" casters for easy moving. With a place in the bottom for a forklift to pick up and move for ease. Then when I was done they sent it off for powder coating. Everything was hand built except for the hinge and wheels. So take a look and see what you think.

Coalsmoke, here is one I generated for the BIL for use in the field, 10"x¼" sq tube, sucker is pretty heavy but is a take-down unit and chunk in the back type of thing, similar to one all have seen on rig welder units.
