    Pretty small grill for such a big unit...especially with all those buns and burgers to do on the table. I like it though and a pretty paint job, but would have designed it with some turbo/turbine functions, bigger grill areas with multi temps, perhaps a smoker on one end, and called it the Turbo Grill...maybe mount it on a flat bed and take it to big parties and Grill-offs!

    This is pretty cool but I have to ask where does one find surplus jet engine nacelles? It must weigh a bit too as there is some pretty substantial support structure underneath.

    This would make a great road side bugger stand. I can see it now "Jet Burger".

    I know there are aircraft bone yards around the country...one outside of Phoenix I'm pretty sure and one in So Cal. Probably need permission and bring your own tools...and big o' truck. Pick and Pull for aircraft.

    This better be used at an appropriate facility. It pains me seeing the distinguished Pratt & Whitney logo used in such a nonsensical manner.
    I have a jacket with that patch, and enameled engine badge, both from a most influential mentor, I didn't even work there! Going any further will get jingoistic.
