Default Bbq shack

Long story short is im tired of sweating my butt off at cookoffs or having to stay home if there's a chance of rain. So I'm making me a shack to put a window unit and a futon in. I still have to insulate and skin the exterior then I'm going to build a full length roof/porch that will cover everything including the smoker. So first I acquired a smoker and had some good help cutting about a foot off the verticle. It's coming along slowly.

Any particular reason e.g. you're not framing it out like a traditional building? Going to be a heck of a wind load on that thing when you're going down the highway. Interested to see how it turns out.


Oh look a fajita!!
