BBQ Pit Fire Box Build

Recently, I was contracted to build and install a custom fire box for a BBQ pit. The pit was made from a piece of 22" pipe with 3/8" wall thickness. I fabricated the box using 1/4" HRS (Hot Rolled Steel). The measurements are 18" x 18" x 22" and had a full size swinging door on end with sliding damper. I used a Hypertherm Powermax 1000 plasma cutter to cut all pieces to size. I used my Hobart Handler 130 mig welder to tack all box pieces together and then final welded everything using a Lincoln AC/DC Arc welder using 6011 rods (nothing like smelling burning rods in the morning). Everything came together very nice in one weekend, and customer was very impressed. Turns out it was a bbq pit that he inherited from his grandfather. I was glad to do the work, and gained some more leaning experience while doing so (I want to keep on leaning). So long for now, Doug Ramsey
