Default Son's BBQ Pit Project

My middle son Ben did his 2nd project with the Millermatic 180 I got
him. He's going to Texas State U. so doesn't have income at this
point. He wanted a bbq pit of his own, with capability to drag to
wherever. He found an old 150 gal. propane tank and a boat trailer
on craigslist, plus used up some of my materials store.

I had to buy a minimum amount of steel for this thing. My only help
on this thing was to consult on design when he wanted, plus funding,
of course.

He's cooking some chicken and ribs on there right now.

Cool. Grillin' on the right, smokin' on the left?

Oh, was it you who asked about the gas mix on my latest project? Glenn
said he has a 75/25 Ar/CO2 mix and regular steel wire set up.
