Well guys I can't believe it has been 5 years since my RF trailer build. Here is a link to that build: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/104223/new-rf-smoker-trailer-build
It has since treated me well, had numerous cook-offs, won a few trophies. Done plenty of benefits, reunions, fundraisers, etc. I felt it was time for me to do some upgrades to the pit and trailer. It all started when my foot when through the wooden floor of the trailer... long story, and no pitmaster was hurt from it . So new flooring it is, but my imagination kinda went from there...
So here is my thread for the upgrades. It includes:
- new flooring
- new insulated firebox
- rebar firebox grate
- propane torch build in the firebox
- wired for electrical, including LED lights on it.
- repaint the whole pit/ trailer.
Once again I will be in a cookoff in the middle of April, so I am working to get most of this done pretty quick. Already a month into the upgrades, and have made progress. I will be posing pics in a bit. Here's one to start, the firebox grate:
This is the old grate.. it was all torn up from 5 years of use.
And here is the new grate.
More pics to come, stay tuned!
