Rick's Scavenger hunt RF build ....

Post by Gizmo » April 18th, 2013, 6:58 am

Ok I'm in ....
I admit it ... here's my tank in the scrap pile.... prolly be DQ'ed for using an old smoker tank to make a smoker but HEY! ... it is IN THE SCRAP PILE .... :-w

Now I gotta find a FB or make one ... and a baffle plate ... and a trailer ... or an axle .... do you think I should build a trailer or just buy one? :D

Maybe I can talk the old lady into trading for a better tow vehicle ... maybe a V10 ... NOW we're talking!

And on the eighth day God created barbecue …. because he DOES love us and he wants us to be happy. :D

Rick what in the world is all that white stuff on all your best junk? You know, I haven't seen snow in 25 years. That must be what it is.

WooHoo looks like we have a contest. Oh wait, Frank said he is in but um, no proof. :D


BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.

At the rate I'm moving on this I'm gonna have to kick it into high gear to get something cooked by the 5th of July…. :hissy:

But I did score a firebox out of 3/16" that used to be a change machine strong box at one of my favorite scrap iron places yesterday. He was in a hurry to leave for an appointment so I didn't take time to snap a picture of these on the pile - sorry.

He also had an old tricycle with a couple good wheels - Add $20 to my total…. :D
