2 Build - Dual Pits 2' x 6' CC and 2' x 2' FB

Postby matt08titan » February 18th, 2017, 8:28 am

I ended up selling my last trailer pit. I just picked up 3 qty 6'x24"x1/2" steel pipes and a new tandem axle trailer 6x12. I had a lot of trouble with my last pit, so I plan on taking my time posting alot of pictures and asking alot of questions as I progress on this new one.

1/2" pipe!
That is a family hand me down. Once they get hot you can open the door and close it and the temperature won't even budge

Making Progress, hope to be finished in 3-4 weeks.

Outstanding List-
-Replace hinges with bullet hinges , weight of doors on hinges is causing alignment issues (doors slightly sprung 1/2" thick 80lbs each)
-insulate both fire boxes
-build doors for fire boxes
-paint
-an out remaining space on trailerImageImageImageImageImage

Nice work, is this the clean out door? Are you going to make a door on the top of the FB? It just seems like a small opening is why I asked.

Also, wanted the door as low as possible, but i am realizing may have made a little small. Hopefully loading wood isnt a pain in the ...

Your numbers for the FB are right on 100% and your intake is a little larger but that's fine. I think he was referring to the overall size of the door, it looks a little bit tight.

I had a FB similar to yours and it loaded from the top.

Top view

You can see the fire grate and the fire basket, I really like baskets cause they keep the wood stacked and burning.

Image

Clean out door

Image

Possible grill if so inclined

Image

This the door

Image

These are just options and me explaining why I asked the question. You sure don't need to do it this way.

Looking real nice. Are those bullet hinges? I was thinking about using bullet hinges on my pit but my buddy swears to me they won't work unless my door strapping is on the inside but yours is on the outside. Can you post a close up of the hinges please. ?
