Hello all,

This is my first BBQ forum and first post. I recently acquired a 16' trailer with two 3500 lb axles. Have removed the 2" x 8" x 16' boards to replace and beef up the damaged angle iron underneath. My goal is to build a reverse flow smoker and to frame the trailer with 2" x 3/16 metal tubing and install a roof. My questions are:
1. Do I weld / bolt smoker to frame or the new floor?
2. Do I have the right idea for material type when it comes to building the frame?
