Hi everyone,

Thanks in Advance.

This is my first project of this type so I'm really excited but also really inexperienced so all help is appreciated.

I have had some rust and some minor "restoration" on my offset. What I did was take it apart, sand it down, used some high heat grill paint from home depot, stained the wood, sealed the wood and then put it back together. Came out pretty good. Sadly about two months later the cover just sort of fall apart and I haven't had a chance to pick up another.

Anxiously awaiting for the photos. I am sure that it turned out great. It will be interesting to see a before and after picture to do the comparison. :)

Looking really good you are off to a good start. A sugestion would be to buy or scrounge up some sheet metal and bend it to fit the bottom of the pit making a fire pan This would greatly increase teh life of the bottom of your pit.
