Barbeque Concession TrailersIf you were following my build project on the Wood Smokers thread you know I had a problem with the builder who was building my smoker for me. He was going to put a 500 gallon tank with a 250 gallon stand up smoker with a chicken grill from Yoder’s Smoky Mountain Barbecue on a 16 foot trailer. Now I may be no expert at building smokers like he claimed to be but I know he was dead wrong. I uniformity paid him $2000.00 for work and materials. He still owes me material and money. I most likely will have to take this guy to small claims court.
Now a good friend of mine told me since I was planning on putting on the tanks, chicken grill and a set of stainless steel sinks that I might as well enclose the whole trailer. He’s in the lawn cutting business and was telling me about this barbeque trailer that he watched this guy make. He said it would just what I wanted. He was right. It’s a great set up having the smoker on one half of the trailer and the other half as an air condition kitchen work area. Now this trailer had the smoker, which was a “Lang” on the back half with large screened in windows to let everybody smell the barbeque smoke. He had a side window in the kitchen work area for customers to buy what is cooking.
I made up a drawing of a trailer that I found on the net and added the walls around the smoker part. In the drawing the smoker is on the trailer hitch side while at the back of the trailer is the kitchen with a rear and side window for customer exchange. Question number one: Which end would you put a 500 gallon and a 250 gallon tank with a chicken grill and 2 propane cookers for cooking Fish and Corn. Put the tanks on the back of the Trailer? Or front of Trailer hitch end?
Question number two: should I start building one using a 24 food trailer? Or use a self enclosed trailer and put up a wall and door to separate the two ends, put in windows and screen area, put in my own sinks and electrical outlets??
Here is the image of the Barbeque Smoker Trailer that I was thinking of building. Oh one last question. How do I make sure that driving around with this Barbeque Smoker Trailer won’t start becoming loose from driving on bad roads?
