Looks very nice. Yours is a bit higher than mine. These are ~56 gallon kettles
Thanks Wayne. We are definitely considering the heat shield for the sight gauges. We were thinking that the 3" hangover from the angle iron might be enough protection but if not we will definitely be adding something in.
Thanks again for helping us out and cutting to the size we needed. Glad you get to see where some of your fittings ended up. Our stand is about 6" higher than the original plan was for. There was a slight miscommunication with my welder and it ended up being 6" taller than anticipated. Oh well. It seems that no matter how much you plan on these things there are always going to be a couple things that end up slightly different. Just happy to see the progress and finally feel like we are getting close to finishing her up. Thanks again Wayne
