You're off to a great start Joe, 

I don't know if your considering the double doors with the slide out racks but I'm glad I did it on my build.

It took more work and $$$ but it really paid off in the long run.

 

Keep it up my friend, Can't wait to see it putting out some TBS welder.gif

I am doing the double doors like yours.... 1 door on each side. The smoker doesn't need to be placed in the right direction for access to smoke. Does it have any other benefits I cant see....

 

Need some help with your trailer build. did you just bend the back of the trailer in and weld in the cross members?

Yes I did Joe, I just notched a V in the top and bottom of the Channel Iron and used a Come-along to pull the two sides together until

I got my desired with.

Yeah yeah.. I'll be getting to it shortly... I'm going to give raptors rig a good once over for some measurements when I get down to Jerry's place. I like what he did with the two doors, one on each side.... Been looking for a trailer...at minimal cost but its not working out...Looks like I am going to have to build one....

Well I bet all of you are stuffed eating popcorn for the last 2 yrs waiting for me to finish my smoker project. Made some progress and picked up some matirial and started the trailer. I have the frame fabbed and will be getting the 3500 lb axle hopefully next week.......

 

Here are some pics of my progress

 

4 inch c channel iron

 

 

Went to my buddys shop. Needed a flat level floor......

 

 

 

Picked up a 3 inch square X1/4 thick tube for 60 bucks..... Pretty stout trailer tongue....

 

 

 

Thats all for now...... Thanks for looking and I hope to have this smoker finished by the end of the year
