I didn't mean to editorialize about the price Brian.
I love the looks of your stuff. In fact, if I have more time next East coast trip I take, I'd love to come see your place, get a first hand look at your stuff. Those small smokers are pretty heavy, aren't they? I didn't look to see if you stated an approximate weight.
Just looked. 75! That's more'n what my fat dog weighs! Neat.
The first mini with the trailer frame and propane bottle weighs more than 80. The new one i built weighs more like 40. I was able to trim down weight by reducing the materials involved. I went from 1/4" thick body to 3/16" and 1/8" which in scale is still way more than sufficient. I actually was able to make a nicer build with the thinner materials also due to the fact i was able to bend the thinner materials which left less welding like the internal baffle which came out really sweet in the new mini. This is also part of where the $150 less came from. New fabrication methods giving less man hours involved. When I get an order for one of these, I can have one start to finish done in about 3 days depending on other shop workload. The holidays coming, Im anticipating what happened to me last year which is everyone waits until the second week of Dec and wants it for Xmas.
