Showed the wife how the burners work tonight while we sat drinking in front of the fireplace outside in the patio. Love this cooer weather & lack of mosquitos!!!

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt
Not Commit Adultery," and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians...It creates a hostile work environment.

That was a busy day. It looks great.

Question. How do you like the mount for your controls? Does it tilt some ?

It wasn't all done in one day, lol, as my skills are not nearly that good. I've been working on this thing for a couple of months now. I wish I was capable of doing that much in one shot. The swivel mount is nice as I can position the controls away from the heat. It tilts up to 15 degrees up and down. When I first installed it I thought it too low, but its not a big deal. I may modify it later so it tilts further up.

Bad arse man! I have a bit of fabricating background and am dying to get my funds together to build a stand. I really like the idea of partially automated.

While watching Liverpool suck against Chelsea, I went ahead and mounted the diamond plate lower "shelf". I'm gonna have to find some type of wire wrap for the valves wires coming out from underneath. Any suggestions? I feel like they need a little extra protection as well as to look better.

you'd have to disconnect them first, but I think some braided cable cover would look awesome on it. similar to what you;d use on a motorcycle to look like braided line.

I was thinking something like that as well, but maybe cheaper. Disconnecting them is easy enough to do, thanks.

Well, I couldn't wait for Christmas for the Chugger pumps so I ordered them from Bobby at Brewhardware.com. Really impressed with how quickly they got them to me. They came this morning via the mailman and I had to mount them. Ran the power cables through the lower shelf with a couple of strain relief water resistant plugs. I picked up some cheap wire harness from Lowes to use for now. I may replace it for covering the gas valve wires later, but we shall see. I also bought a couple of thick grommets which I cut on one side and siliconed in between the gas valve and the diamond plate splash guard above it. Still have to cut and bend up the diamond plate I have for the splash guard for the pumps but slowly making progress.
