ny, I like the cable controlls for the dampers, looks good do you have air injectors on top or just front and back?

Tom,

I only have an air bar across the back of the firebox, then through the door and above the door. I tried the air on the sides of the firebox but they never worked like I had hoped. I'm hoping the air on top of the door frame will act like an air curtain when I fire and keep the smoke and ash in.

Are those cable controls the ones from grainier? I just don't have time to get mine on this year,but I'm sure I will after season is over.

The control cables I got were from McMaster Carr. Sorry I dont have any build pictures that has been a lingering project since last year and I finally put my nose to the grind stone to finish it. The pans are just a standard raised flue pan, I have thought about possibly getting a max flue pan in the future but an ro still seems like more bang for my buck.

Looks great. The garage looks like mine, sixty eleven projects in the works, and no horizontal surface left uncluttered. It truely is the only way to go.
