A good type of welder for welding a BBQ smoker pit is a wire-feed welder. Wire-feed welders are available in different volts, and the kind of welder a person chooses depends on the thickness of the metal in use.
Homeowners can find reliable wire-feed welders at local stores for less than $200, as of 2016, and the recommended wire to use with these is the 0.035-inch flux-cored wire. Wire-feed welders allow for ease of use, as an individual can weld while seated or standing. Additionally, a wire-feed welder allows one to complete a job quickly and neatly. Many are portable and can operate easily with power found in most home garages.
