    Made a few BBQ ovens the same way but used a gas burner made from 25mm square tube with slots/holes cut in. Used MIG welder tips as the gas jet. They worked very, very well

    I had the wire speed up a tad too high but I'm happy with the welds

    ImageUploadedByAussie Home Brewer1455275848.355972.jpg
    Time to weld it closed

    That's enough crime fighting for one night time to grab a beer and head up stairs
    Tomorrow I plan on doing some finishing touches and make some hinges and then cut the door out

    Hi guys and gals sorry I haven't been updating much over the last few days been busy with work and my father in law in hospital having a bypass done
    Any who's I did manage to get some things done last night
    ImageUploadedByAussie Home Brewer1455690027.566227.jpg
    I was toying with the idea of running some angle iron around the firebox to stiffen things up a tad plus hide the welds
