I was asked by a friend if I would build a Santa Maria style barbeque grill for his church. How could I refuse? After two short days in the shop, this is what I have, so far. It is 3X8, not counting the fold down shelves on each side. There will be two, independent, grilling surfaces, each controlled by a crank and cables to raise and lower them. I still have to build the firebox, the grills and a few odds and ends. I hope to have it done by the end of the week or early next week. The grills will be a bit of a chore, due to having to assemble about a jillion pieces of 1/4 inch stainless rod. I've figured out a little jig that will make it a bit easier.
