i have a homeade meat smoker it's an aluminum barrel that's 4' tall and 41''across. It has 4 shelves of expanded metal they remove so you have 4 hanging rods per shelf making it very versatile! It works great i used gas heat. Heats very evenly the racks turn so it makes it easy to load/ unload and you can also turn during cooking if you wish for a more even smoke. Yes it is on a golf cart for trailer i combined both of my hobbies got a tongue on the trailer to pull it around for easy moving. $325.00 call only please at 641 485 2246in central Iowa

I must say, that is one of a kind.

are you sure the barrel is aluminum.

Aluminum reacts with certain foods.

hmmm never heard that before . What foods does aluminum react with???

Acidic foods, have you ever had a tray of food with a tomato base sauce covered in foil, it will eat a hole through the foil, I always wrap with plastic wrap if it has a tomato base.

Last time I did ribs I covered in HD foil, forgot all about using the plastic, next day there were holes eaten away thru the foil.

Vinegar based stuff will do the same and sometimes will leave behind an off taste.

Looks like the chamber is aluminum but the grates are not so it should be fine. Plus the aluminum foil and highly acidic food may cause a reaction, but it does not mean that it is toxic.

Toxicity never crossed my mind, and if its seasoned, the food shouldn't react with it anyhow.

It is pretty cool!
