So my brother recently got engaged to a fantastic woman. Really excited and have been waiting for this to happen for a years now. But I was trying to think of a great wedding gift for him and my soon to be sister in-law. We are all pretty outdoorsy, and my brother and his fiancé are incredibly utilitarian, practical, and overall outdoor enthusiasts (they are both foresters).
And, we all love to BBQ. In fact, I think food at the wedding will include having a trailer smoker. But when we were growing up we went to a family cabin that had a Santa Maria style grill that we all loved. I was thinking about putting one together as a wedding present for them.
Problem is, I haven't really built anything that big or like that before. I have some welding equipment, and plan on picking up a new grinder and flap disc for the project (good excuse to buy them anyway). But does anyone have any helpful hints or words of wisdom? I'll likely be trying to do it over the winter holidays when I have a break from my masters program.
For those that don't know what a Santa Maria Grill looks like, here's a pic:
