After lots of sitting down looking at it I finally figured out a door handle that would work

$6 chip hammer looked like it would work

A quick cut weld and some tube later

Cooking grills extended the centre section is removable to help with cleaning the fat off the heat tray

After a few brews I finally worked out a door handle that would work and look ok

Some pipe,rod and chip hammer handle later

My super high tech clamp idea to hold it in place

The finished bush mechanic style handle works

Once the handle was sorted out I made a start on the vent control
To save from leaning over the firebox I made up this control bar out of some rod and tube

Sweet! Now is there a solid plate that goes under the grill plate? Did I miss that bit? Newbie to the reverse offset smoker. I read the description you gave Judanero and I thought from that there would be a solid plate as well as the grill mesh.

Now then, I have that old 70 litre keg and a 35 litre keg...and zero welding skills...hmmmm

I finally got a chance to test the smoker out yesterday
I didn't cook anything but it was a nice night to sit in front of the fire while I seasoned it View attachment 87638

I got a huge offer to swap it for a keg system and a lot of brew gear that was hardly used.

Sadly my little piggy got sold today but it's for a good cause.... No more bottling [emoji4]

Hope you gave the guy who bought it a medal, hes put his own life on the line and reduced your chances of getting gastric cancer 10 fold.
