      Yes and no. It was more than I thought it would be but calling around I was quoted anywhere between $1500 and $2100 for all three pieces. The guy that built it for me charged me $900. It’s 108”x32” with a 2” overhang on all sides and a 5 1/2” welded overhang around the griddle. My neighbor know about stainless and he said all of the welds done are flawlessly.

            So, revisiting this thread, I have a couple of questions:

            1. Is that composite decking you used for the facade?
            2. Where did you get those stainless doors and frames?

            Thanks.

            David

              Yes I used composite decking as the facade. I purchased it at Menards here in Ohio.

              The doors I bought from Amazon. They are Mophorn brand. The one under the kettle is 24x17 and the one under the griddle is 42x21

            Nice work. Impressed that even though you had to set the the shelf under the griddle back a bit for tank in/out, you angled the shelf to maximize the storage real estate. I never would’ve had the patience for all those angles. Also like the little chamfers in the studs under the tank so it would sit lower. Little things.

                            Placeholder

                            The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                            Placeholder

                            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                            Placeholder

                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                            Placeholder

                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                            The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                            Placeholder

                            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                            Placeholder

                            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                            Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
