Got the floor finished...

Added a piece of 3/4" plywood to the bottom and covered it with a rubber diamond plate mat. I can stand it now.

To paint or not to paint...That's the only question....?

Got it almost finished.....Not sure if I want to paint it or not.

Got the front end done....

Just got to drill a few holes for the rear and it will be ready for some clear coat.  I might cut a piece of 3/4" plywood and make a seat for it....?

Rat Rod radio flyer wagon....

Picked up this little beauty at the yard sale this weekend....Plan on turning it into a rat rod. Started mocking it up tonight. I might try to find some old tricycle spoke wheels for the front.

Got the foam cut for a couple of the drawers....

The ratchet drawer was done with just a utility knife....The pliers drawer was done with a dremel tool and turned out much better. The foam I used came from Harbor Freight, it's a mat used in from og the tool boxes.

Whole set of Harbor Freight 44 tool boxes with 26" side....

They line up pretty well....I'm pleased with how this set has turned out...Just a little over OTD.

Smoked my first babyback ribs.....

They turned out great...Maybe the best I have cooked on the smoker yet.  I did the 2-2-1 method. 2 hours straight uncovered....2 hours in a pan covered and then 1 hour uncovered.

Harbor Freight black top 44" cabinet.....

Picked up the top section today...It just fit in the bed of my truck with the camper top still on. It's heavier than I expected it to be....Picking up the rest on Saturday.

Smoked a pork loin bottom roast.....

Odd cut of meat....The bottom was just about all bone and the cook time showed it....5 lbs and almost no fat when I pulled it, but lots of bones. I put it in the smoker at 12:30 after rubbing it down and injecting it with 1/4 cup of apple juice. Smoker around 300 for first hour then down to 250, I started misting it with apple juice once an hour about 4 hours into the cook...I wrapped it in foil  when the temp hit 170 and I had to up the temp back to 290 or so for the last hour and a half to get it to 195. Pulled it off the smoker at 9:30.....Yep 9 hours. Let is sit still wrapped in the foil for an hour and a half before pulling it apart.

I used charcoal, oak, pecan and some cherry wood chips....I got a load of hickory from Daddy for my birthday....Not sure what I'm gonna smoke first with it.

It turned out pretty good although I only had a bite or two when I pulled it, can't wait to dig after church tomorrow.

Now for the pics.....
