    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

    The bench is complete

    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

    ImageUploadedByAussie Home Brewer1458033536.890995.jpg

    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

    View attachment 87639

    View attachment 87640

    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

    Nice work, a piggy for a keggy is worth it, especially when you make the piggy yourself....

    Great build, and enjoy the kegging, as they say, you will never look back

    Great looking smoker btw
