Thread Starter 
I just went to TLC to check for Pitmasters....

And when I got there,they are bending a huge sheet of metal to build a smoker

Anyone see this?

They are building a smoker right now (showing right before Pitmasters)

with all their equipment they have and people on the payroll it should be nice. just think if they had somebody that knew what they were doing.

Maybe Paul Jr. could start up a smoker division of OCC. haha Pretty sad what fame and fortune did to that family!!!

I saw the OCC smoker bit too. The steal thickness seemed a bit thin for the diameter/length of the barrel.

did they finish it? If they did I missed that part.

Actually they did one awhile back in 2007 I think it was here is the article for those interested.


As for finishing it they didn't show it if they did. It will probably look similar to the one in the article. My thoughts. I was got excited but was disappointed they didn't show the completed product. Being they was building it for a Jets fan tailgating.

no this one is a trailer unit about 5 x 3 ft main chamber, I saw them rolling the barrell but didn't hear any specs, it wasn't sheetmetal thats for sure, at least 1/8 from the heft it appeared to have, Jim Quinn the older guy that likes the floral shirts was pumped, he must be a smoker, almost that manic look LOL. Only saw about 1/2 not sure if they finished it on the show last night or not. I am gonna try and catch the show in rerun because the main build was a turbo diesel powered chopper which seemed pretty cool also.

I believe that paul sr. recently opened up a bbq joint in KC at legends. I know he is not the cook but he was there for the opening and I believe occ is on the billboard.

As long as they use thin blue smoke and not the exhaust from a V twin. PDT_Armataz_01_04.gif

Could someone fill me in on this show, I got tired of watching Paul Sr.'s rants. Watching bikes being built under a supposed deadline was getting old. I read from a previous post Paul Sr. showed signs of roids. Are Vinnie & Cody back on board or was I seeing a rerun? If so what happened to Vinnie's business? Did Paulie actually leave or was that scripted for the ratings? Maybe doing this show wasn't such a good idea for the Teutel family. They do have one heck of a shop though.

Vinnie and Cody have their own shop, V-Force Customs.


Apparently they got their own TV show, Throttle Junkies. It premiers on 2/14/10, but it looks like it is pretty limited on where it is showing.

I don't think they finished it on the show. They mentioned that it is going to be a "side" project because they still have to meet the deadlines on their bikes. So they just work on it when they have time. I think they mentioned how thick the steel was, I want to say 1/4". I think they said something similar to, "the roller is supposed to be able to roll 3/8" so 1/4" shouldn't be a problem". They quite a few guys handling the sheet in the roller when they ran it through.

Hey guys, just came across this site with you all discussing the American Chopper smoker. I am the guy they are "building the smoker for." Lol, at least on tv that is what is going on.

Anyway, I am assuming they will show the final unveil this thursday night at 9pm, after they show a repeat of last weeks episode.

To tell you the truth, I don't really do any smoking due to the time constraints the NFL is putting on tailgaters, with 4-5 hours at most stadiums now. But I am thinking after watching pitmasters and genuinely loving bbq that I am going to jump in and buy one of these weber smokers bullet smokey mountains and give it a go.

Glad I found this place, I actually have a few smoking questions, hopefully this is a good resource.
