I am ready to build the rack tonight, but have since lost the plans I printed out. Does anyone have the plans or link handy? Thanks[p]Steve-B

    eggor,[p]I don't know why that never came up in archive search. Thanks a ton!!![p]Steve-B

    Steve-B,[p]not a major problem only took 1/2 an hour trying to find it prolly should have just emailed the pdf would have been faster. Also try your first rack without the top pieces welded on you might be surprised just how much you can get on just the lower half. If you have to pay someone to weld it minimum charge is around 20 bucks. try an indirect setup and don't go over 250 dome. let me know how it goes.

    I got the rack done without any major problems. I have a slightly crooked leg on one end and a little burn on my elbow. One of the earlier bends got in my way. I have the meat in the fridge and will have beef jerky at this time tommarow.[p]Steve-B

    eggor,[p]Excellent job on the rack. I noticed you did a direct cook. What temp and how long?[p]Thanks,[p]Tom

    Freak,[p]it was direct, i shot for 225 but it got up to 250 a couple times. next batch will try 225 and indirect. a lot of people say run at 180 to 200 but they are laying the meat flat on a grid which exposes a larger surface area to the fire. The results I get with my setup are great.
