Hey BBQE, awesome build! I was wondering, it's been a while since you built this thing, have you noticed any warpage anywhere with the 1/8" material? I am planning on building a smoker and plan to use the same material as you did. Would be curious to know if after a few years of use you've seen any material deformation.

Thanks, and awesome build!

Yes it is. I am gathering supplies for a build based off of this build.

Take note of exhaust placement and size compared to total cubic inches of space.

A couple of years ago I did an upgrade on the Iron Maiden adding a couple of features that I originally envisioned but didn't have the time. Then once it was up and running, I just made due without...I can tell you that the upgrades make a big difference in convenience for me...I thought I would add them here to keep this thread up to date. originally posted in this thread...LINK



I wanted to add a few things to the Iron Maiden that I have never gotten around to during the initial build.
  1. Drop Down Step
  2. Pull out shelves

These two things will aid me greatly in cooking massive quantities of BBQ.

I design criteria that I incorporated into the shelves was to be as low profile as possible, to pull out without coming out or tipping, and also be completely removable. Here's how I did mine.

I mounted angle iron for shelf brackets. At the rear of the brackets I cut out a profile that would receive a tab from the shelf.


On each side of the shelf I mounted a tab made from angle iron that would captivate the shelf into the shelf bracket.


Here it is grabbing the shelf bracket as the shelf is slid out.


At the front of the shelf bracket I welded a hard stop on each side so you can't pull the shelf out the front.


Here it is with all the shelves extended...I just need to clean everything up and tack the expanded metal on the shelf frames.




I also added a drop down step that folds up for travel.

BTW, nice werk!
Mark,

The 1 1/2 x 1/4" metal bar stock I used for the shelves is very rigid at the distances that they cantilever over the front of the shelf bracket. You would be hard pressed to bend these. They are also supported by 2 1/2" angle.

I know in my pictures they look small and light compared to the massiveness of the smoker, but they aren't. They are solid and tight.

Also on the step, I used massive hinges since the step acts as a huge lever arm.


I also Gusseted the 3"angle I used for that with 3/8" plate steel.




I built this step super solid...I am a big guy...NFL linebacker big. I would hate for this thing to drop me on my head so I made sure it would handle the stresses of a big cook.

Finished up my project this AM...looks pretty good. I've gotta finish shining it up and then a quick pressure wash and season for the grates. I did use some new grates and recycled a couple that I have to hit with a wire brush on the angle grinder, but this is gonna make it nice and I'll have much more useable rack space.

Looks like I was too late to witness this greatness. I just started cruising the net looking for ideas for an insulated smoker. I noticed several references to the Iron Maiden build. Unfortunately photobucket isnt cooperating with my search. Is there any way to have the pictures posted again?

The iron Maiden is a thing of beauty. Sorry that PB went on the war path.
