Yeah, being handy has its advantages.. But while the wife and 3 kids are playing on their devices all day,(California covid19 lockdown thru August!) I try it and get bored after 2 minutes and have to do something with my hands.
Off I go to the shop to tinker on something. A buddy is bringing a 110 gal tank next week and we are going to build a bbq for him. He wants one like the Lang grille that goes on their trailers. Just the grille.. he cooks over an open flame to sear, then moves everything over off the heat to get some smoke and finish his cook.. not too much material or cost to build this way.. Its sorta the same process as the SantaMaria style of cooking
Added a few more pics of the SantaMaria grille rebuild..
He wanted me to replace his crank wheel on this SantaMaria. I told him that that wheel was the coolest thing on the grille and showed him the old wheelbarrow wheel I got from my father-in-law's ranch, Its the same wheel! .. sears Roebuck 1910 model.. I didn't touch it!! 100 plus year old wheel . Cant find one of those around here too often!

That turned out nice. I like cooking on that style of grill. The new bbq/ smoker I built on my trailer smoker will double as a SantaMaria with the lid opened up. I can move the fire up and down far enough to mimic a SantaMaria.
