@pesto3  really like this unit you did a great job coming up and building this . I like it so much thinking about making one for myself so any dimensions you could share like back and front heights as well as the inside , outside dimensions of the rings that would be great. Think this info would save me some grief.

Yeah no problems at all mate. When I get home I will measure it up!

Hey mate, the lift in the front is 190mm and I had to make a small lift at the back of 10mm. 

 

The top and bottom rings were cut too 360mmx410mm in 2mm steel. 

 

Best tip is, set it up on your Kamado first. Get the height you want (front and back) and make sure your top rings sit flush all the way around (gaps here will mean air leaks) take it of and tack it in place with your welder. 

 

Next is a process of going back and forth. You will only need a couple of spacers, you want to make sure that the top ring stays flat against the top of your kamado. Once you've shimmed it and are happy, take it off and tack it. Go back and double check it then weld your spacers in place. Check again. Then wrap and weld the thin steel sheeting around (from here on you just need to weld and grind) watch out for buckling!

 

hope this made some kind of sense and helps! Looking forward to seeing what you put up!
