    This is going to be the third smoker we have built, it is just a hobby that we enjoy. It will be reverse flow like the other two, we started out building that way and it seems to work.

    Yes the trailor is from scratch, it used to be a freezer rack in freezer plant. We love junk, and scrapyards, its like finding gold.

    The welder is a 180 HD lincoln it does a good job. I had a old Nissan 4x4 hardbody pickup and my dad wanted it, I popped off and told him I would trade it for a mig welder. Well you can see what happened.

    This is with the main tank mounted and the firebox sitting on a 2x4. Jessie is cutting the top of the door so we can mount the hinges.
