Question(s) for 250 Gallon Trailer Builders

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have a thread of my build on here (http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/171029/new-guy-and-this-will-be-my-1st-reverse-flow-smoker-build) but I am getting ready to start modifying a trailer for my 250 gallon tank build and figure I'll get a better response if I simply start a new thread about trailer building. My question is at what height is the lowest point of your door openings from the ground? I'm trying to get an idea of how much I'm going to have to raise this tank on my trailer. I want to be able to stand on the ground in front of it and be able to reach everything with ease. Tell me what you have or show me a pic of you standing in front of it.

Is the smoker on the trailer while you stand on the ground ?? If so, measure up to the highest you can reach comfortably, and your wife, and figure the top food rack..... and reaching to the back of the rack....

Kitchen counter height is a good place to start. Best to block it up and find best height for you while reaching into the back to tend the meat. Also make sure the door clears your head when open. Nice smoker build.

"Kitchen counter height" Why didn't I think of that? Thanks, sounds like a good place to start.

I like mine at 30"-36".

My fire box is 24" tall, so from the top of the trailer frame to the door opening is 24" (+/-)

I used 15" trailer rim / tires.

 The result is a good working height for both top and bottom racks when pulled out.

I would not want it any higher but it could have been 6" lower and be just as good.
