    FINALLY getting my build going. Trailer 100gal

    Thanks guys. I'll admit a few periods of regret having gone down a path for looks and locked myself into a lot of work. But being able to always look at this and smile and not wish I'd have done it differently ileill be worth it. Had some other work to do in the shop last night. But was able...

    FINALLY getting my build going. Trailer 100gal

    Not sure if anyone's tried this before, but to ease the smoke and hot air turning past the end of the RF plate I used a piece of 2.5" round tube. I'm hoping it will help curve the airflow around the plate and smooth flow out. Been working on my plenum. Wanting it curved, I got a lot of...

    Thanks guys! Appreciate that! Still grinding away, few weeks out of town for work had slowed me a bit. Did a few small things. Made brackets for my CC handle. Mounted the CC door to its hinges I've ungraded my shop a little with a cutting torch (finally) so I cut some 1/2" plate for my RF...

    FINALLY getting my build going. Trailer 100gal

    Made the hinges for the FB scaled down from the CC ones I built. Drilled a hole for a 1/2" stainless baring to sit Mating serface in hinge pin, drilled and counter sunk Door on, surprisingly had a slight warp in door. 1/2" plate and 1 1/2" X1/4" Angle frame. Didn't think it would. Or...

    Yeah I've been thinking about racks. Originally I was thinking two, could do three, I was thinking about making/getting racks to hold ribs on edge to fit more instead of more skidding racks. Not sure yet.

    Adding to smoker

    Sweet! Yeah the gear reduction in the Window Motors are awesome. I've used them in a few projects. Never thought to use for that! Did you just plug them into your trailer plug?

    Agreed with the meat prices for sure. A friend's husband started working at s pork processing plant. Employees can buy case lots for cheap. I hope he keeps the job so I can buy through them.

    FINALLY getting my build going. Trailer 100gal

    I also got my thermometer in from Amazon. 3" stainless just so happen to fit into a piece of 3" stainless water pipe I had. Makes for a pretty nice eyebrow. Fire box is finished its ungodly amount of grinding and sanding. What an ordeal I tell you. My shop is BLACK. everywhere...

    FINALLY getting my build going. Trailer 100gal

    More progress this week. I had always thought I'd use an axe for a handle for the CC. I really like this look. I had thought I could make something that would look like an axe head out of stainless, then fit a replacement handle and I'd be set. BUT THEN I had an idea. I had recently...

    FINALLY getting my build going. Trailer 100gal

    Ok let's see if I can upload some pics today. I made templates and cut out what ended up looking like stainless commas or apostrophes:/ I took the same glass fittings from my CC hinges and cut them down a little smaller and tigged them to my commas These will create the base of my firebox...

    FINALLY getting my build going. Trailer 100gal

    Great minds think alike! I was thinking of a stainless front counter, that wraps around the side. I'll see if I can bribe the glazing company's fab shop into bending something for me :). I might need a bigger axel by the time I'm done! Lol I tried to update the thread but I couldn't upload...

    150 gallon reverse flow trailer build

    Slightly towards the rear, give yourself a tounge weight that's comfortable for your vehicle. I'm in the same spot of trying to figure where to put mine. You could attach a short section of rail to your springs, that way you can adjust your axle back and forth if needed. The trailer rail can...
