Thanks brother! Heres a pic of it..my brother took my pull behind smoker .so i had to use this old girl.i made her back in 09 and she is direct heat type of charcoal/smoke grill. Qtr inch steel welded up nice and still holding strong...just no firebox and not a ideal pit needed for smoking a big 19 lb brisket !
