BBQ Underway!!!

So it took me about 7 hours to get to this point. Seems like a lot, but this is my first BBQ. Really a design build - I didn't have plans laid out, just had the rough measurements. Turned out pretty good. A couple of more hours and I finished with the Hardibacker. Ready for tile and stucco.

Oh wait, the door I ordered turned out to be not what I expected. Apparently, I didn't realize it, but "stainless steel finish" = "steel crappily painted with silver spray paint". Fortunately it was damaged in shipment and after threatening the BBB, I get to return it for a full refund. I ordered a new door. But of course, it isn't the same size so will have to remove some Hardibacker and re-frame the door opening. Figures.

And I need to extend the LP line to the left side of the BBQ. So I'm going to hard pipe it with galvanized 1/2" pipe. And need to run the electrical still - about a 25' trench one foot deep.

I think you do more in a week, then I do in a year. This is some seriously OCB.
