Default 3 tier rig build started

i started my rig build today. i stole some ideas from other rigs on here.
i am using 2" box for the bottom and the "mast." the burner plates and cooler holder will be made from 1.5" box.

tips? ideas?


24' cut down to pieces

bottom frame tacked

ugh, its been a while. its getting ugly

this thing is older than my dad, and it still works like a champ. if only i was any good at using it.

so i was thinking about using some sort of roller syatem instead of a steel sleeve to raise and lower the bottom level. this way it wont tear up the paint.

i am terrible at these computer programs, but maybe something like this.

if you kinda get the idea?


the red would be rollers 2 on one side, one on the other.

ok, the base is done(not painted yet.) all of the burner stands are cut. the HLT stand is welded but i didnt fit a grate in there yet. i also havent figured out what i am going to use for burners yet. i plan to steal the one from my turkey fryer for the hlt, and possibly one from a 250,000 BTU drywall heater for my BK. or i might just buy a banjo burner

Looks great so far. I like the roller idea on the sleeve.

the top tier is on. i was standing on it, and i weigh about 280, so i think it will hold.


the bottom 2 tiers are framed out. i need to cut the grates and wele the one on, and then make the roller system for the bk tier.

Lookin' good!

I used these burners- $8 each from Agri- Supply:




The pic isn't the best, but I'm happy with the burners.
