Made this pry bar from a 1960 something dodge truck rear spring.  I had one for years that I made as a 15 year old with my dad but I lost it last year :(

That's a great idea.  Add wheels and big long handle and those could make great johnny bars.

Started on a offset reverse cycle smoker. A friend gave me an electric hot water cylinder that had never been used as it was rejected during manufacture. It is a bit lighter than ideal but cost nothing, the internal surface is vitreous enamelled. It is 20" diameter and 30" long (online calculators are in imperial units). Now need to get some 4mm plate to close it up.

Fire in the Hole!!!  ;D
Do need to add handles and put a couple of screws to hold the chimney.
When I left all the air vents open, the temp reached 220C = way too hot. Once I closed the air vents 80% it settled at 120C which is perfect. Baked the paint on with this trial. Plan to cook this weekend.

What are you going to cook for the test run?  Put up pics of the results!

All day event - cooking on the smoker. On the menu was beef brisket and a pork loin (would have preferred a pork neck or shoulder). Both dry rubbed last night and then 9hrs at around 115C. Pulled it, and then made up some wraps with coleslaw and home made BBQ sauce.
