My first Build, RF Trailer.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Yeah this is a big project to take on for someone who:


1. Had never built a RF Smoker.

2. Has extremely Limited welding skills.

3. Pulling everyhting from a pile of junk material ( actually I think that part is kinda cool myself)


I appologize that some of these pictures are dark and or Blurry, I was taking pics with my phone. Please Feel Free to Critique it, I can always learn from constructive critisism.


This is the Tank, my starting point.

Negative Tongue weight was a problem So I added some length. Decided that I would add

a Vertical Propane Smoker for a quick warming box.

This is It pretty Much complete, Of course I will find something else to change soon I am sure.

Are those grate frames galvanized?

The are, But the galvanized coating was first ground off and then burned to about 600 degrees, From all that I have read it is safe to use if the galvanized coatings are removed.
