Been a busy week. I'm going out of town a week from today for 10 days. Getting scary close to complete minus lights and possible sound system. Cover material should be in this week.

The folks that blasted and painted her blasted something else before we got the cooker out of their way. However I asked and they told me to let it stay. Well 5 baths later she's cleaned up. Got the lights and hooked up. Minor details left.

My friend, you know the cooker is too big for backyard use when one needs to wash it with a mop!

Great job!
