I started this build thread some time ago over in "Wood Smokers". Had some family issues that delayed the project. Now we have finished everything but the paint and I should be able to do that tomorrow. The smoker is a 175 gal propane tank with two 4" stainless smoke stacks that I got like that for $100. I got the trailer in a trade that cost me $60 bucks. Got the firebox for nothing but had to buy some expanded metal and various steel pieces to finish. Got the stainless rear "bumper guard" at the dump for nothing. Bought new 6 ply tires. All told, I have about $400 bucks in the whole thing. I will be cooking Bubba food until I die.
This is The General and Bubba, Senior Welder and engineer.
Found the firebox at the scrap yard. It is a 1/4", former vertical smoker.
Interior of firebox showing grate and the 6 in. square heat transfer pipes.
Used 1/2 in steel for the 3' intake covers. Gorilla Welding.....It's UGLY but it's STRONG!
Four racks cover entire smoker area.
1 x 12 removable Red Cedar
Table folds down and legs fold in. "Handles" are for hanging towels.
Will post the finished painted pictures when done.
Thanks for everyone's encouragement and inspiration.
