Thanks. Was hoping to get to a point today with the smoker that I could get the fabricator over here to build the doors (no, I can't weld) next week, but that will be put on hold for the moment. Since it's rained around here they told me if their regular job site was to muddy they would show up here Monday. I'm hoping it is and he brings a couple labors with him to take out a portion of fence and a couple of bushes that are in a new walkway area.

Thank you. The guys came back today and finished the floor and did a little detail work. Saturday they are supposed to be here and do the acid wash and seal. The fabricator for the smoker doors left not long ago and had some really good ideas. Turns out their shop is just around the corner from me and I never knew it. If their price is right we may have doors in the near future. Pretty much after that is finishing the electrical, then we'll discuss the fire pit.

Looks like you spent a good bit of time planning or either you’re mighty quick on the draw. Looks awesome. Hope y’all enjoy it for years to come.

Thank you. I have to admit that we had a basic plan to start with but as things progressed we decided to do some extras as we saw we could. Island was one when we decided to lengethen the slab. A few things were moved as we saw they fit better in different spots when we set the grills. The north side lower counter and smoker were shooting from the hip as they were not in the original idea, just seemed like a good add on and I know we will be happy with them down the road. I appreciate the sentiment.

Plus, it's usually cheaper & easier to have it all done from the gitgo than go back and add it later.

How many of the thermal bricks do you think they used in just the smoker section?

I'd say 130 and be really close.

The guys got to the sealing part a week late yesterday and I'm not sure I'm going to be happy with it. The dark part in the corner either hasn't cured like the rest or they used a different product on it. Just haven't figured out which yet. The second picture is on the west side of the cooking area which was all grass. Looks to have made a nice walkway like the wife wanted. The fabricator that was going to build the smoker doors apparently crapped out on me so I hired a different guy last week. I really hate it when people don't give you the courtesy of returning a call to tell you they backed out.
