    I went down to tulsa and picked up my bellfab smoker on friday, then cruised over to springfield?ozark mo for the night, 1100 miles or so and I got it home saturday, pressure washed today, seasoning sometime this week.

    It cost me right around $200 in gas in the big block dually, far less than what it would have cost to ship, I would have had to pay three times the price for a similar unit up here so my overall investment, good food, bears, road trip is still well under half, Once I learn its personallity I will decide on any mods if needed. This unit is 5/16 on the main chamber and 3/8 on the firebox.

    SWEEEET! Good looking smoker...

    As you know, since we've been messaging, I am ordering the 24 x 36" model on Monday, and hope to have it in about 4 - 5 weeks. You absolutely CANNOT beat the price on the Bell Fab units. I can't wait to get mine. For those that are interested, he will "tweak" his design to your specifications, make custom sizes, etc.

    Can't wait to see some Que made on THAT monster!

    Nice, can't wait for some more feedback on these units. So this unit is 24"x54 and change? Looking forward to your first smoke with it.

    Also...if anyone near Central IL is interested in these, I can get a dock to dock delivery at my business for $185...of course, Jim's 24 x 54" smoker is a lot bigger than what i'm getting so I'm sure something that size would be more. By the sounds of it - he did alright by picking it up himself...
    I'm just saying that if you don't have the luxury of a shipping dock like I do, then the shipping would probably be $350+ for inside delivery. I'm not 100% sure on that, but I know I can't drive to Tulsa, so $185 seemed fine.

    I'm getting the 24 x 36" model, with two interior racks. The main rack is of course 24 x 26" and the top rack is 12 x 36" This takes my total square inch cooking surface from 488 sq. in. now in the Brinkmann Cimarron - to 1296 sq. in. in this Bell Fab. [​IMG]

    Anywhoo - if anyone around the Central IL area is interested you can PM me.
