I'd like to introduce tailmachine 1.0 * :




-----

I've been working on this for a few months , it started out as 2 Wildrose kegs.

The big keg has been clam-shelled .It's soon to be a gas BBQ.The smaller (vert) keg is a draught cooling tower.The whole works plugs into a standard 2" trailer hitch.....

I've got 95% of the required parts , and a final plan , It's my goal to have this done in 2 weeks.Tailgate party of doom !!!



* Prior art 1st pic ! ; property of Wildrose Brewery.
-Concept ; B. McKenzie
-Design , Fabrication ; R. Gunderson

Some of you guys never fail to impress me! Building a freakin' good time on wheels while I fail miserably trying to assemble a shed

How about a cross country HWC BBQ tour once that thing is complete?

Ross, I need to head to back to Calgary, and have a chat.

Can you imagine it's been 4 years already since flew over?

w00p !!

Thanks everyone !

I worked on it all day... The draught tower is complete , cleaning commences tomorrow . I have 1 of 2 burners for the bbq , #2 is on order . It'll be 110,000 BTU's in a 'small' form factor.

Frame design is finished , It's cutting and welding time....With any luck the frame gets painted this weekend !



Edit : John , do you ski ?
