Default The single tier build.

I had a pretty productive few days. I don't have the plumbing figured out yet, but the structure is complete, so I guess the hard part is done. Here's a couple pics of the last few days labor.

Now that is some awsome work, I like the use of angle iron for your burner supports, simplicity at best. Sexy looking Brew stand, congrats!

What do you guys suggest I do....paint it or have it powder coated? I can't imaging any surface treatment surviving direct flame (I.E. the metal adjacent to the burners), but I do want to dress it up a little.

If it were me I'd go with BBQ black paint, which should stand up fine to the heat. If money were no issue I'd have it powder coated. BTW, what does that run for a object of this size?

That looks Solid. Why is the march pump on the opposite end of the burner adjusters?

I want the "front" to be clean....without the gas piping etc. I'm going to plumb it so that the only gas system components out front are the ignitor and adjustment knobs....just like a gas grill.

I haven't checked into the price of getting the rig powder coated...I'm sure it's not cheap.
