I've been following this thread for years, never able to justify the cost of the parts... until now. I have a couple pieces on order, and am ready to start constructing my LBE, but I'd like to run a couple design areas past the collective intelligence here.
My plan is to start with a 22" grill, attach this Bayou Classic burner
to the bottom, cut a 1/8" steel plate to fit inside at the grill level, with the exception of an open area in the back. I'll put this Lazy Susan Bearing Turntable
on top of the metal plate, and finally this 19" kiln shelf
on top of the turntable.
Edit: I might rethink that particular kiln shelf. Shipping is about 2/3 the cost of the stone itself.
Of course, I'll cut an appropriate opening in the front of the grill cover. I'm still a little confused about the design of the overhead director. Photos are so two-dimensional. It's difficult to see the shape of something.
This plan attempts to reflect a lot of the improvements that have been successful over the years. If anyone sees anything I'm doing horribly wrong, please stop me before I hurt myself. Thanks.
