    Keep an eye on and also watch the classifieds section here on the SMF.
    Here you've got people all over the country keeping an eye out for stuff like that. You'll see them pop up here fairly often.

    Here's one that looks like it's actually in fairly decent shape, especially for the price. The trailer looks like it needs a little TLC. It's an ad that was posted 12-12-09, so it may not be active. But take a look.

    Yea, maybe something a little nicer, just wanting to pick up and go with it, i have around $2500 to $3000 to spend on one. Thanks for the reply.

    give this guy a call, his prices are about 1/3 of the big boys,

    Single guy making custom homemade pits, he will make any mods you want, very easy to work with, his small/medium trailer pits cost less than many companies patio models do. With him you can upgrade to thicker steel cheaper than other companies because he works in the steel industry.

    I missed this when reading the thread earlier. PM me if you'd like a new trailer rig. A friend of mine builds some nice ones that are probably in the ball park of what you're wanting to spend.

    Hey there HogFan. What JDT said about Bell Fab. is dead on...check this out, he quoted me $1,600 for this model (link below) when I talked to him just last month. I bought his 'patio' version in April of '09 - very, very happy with price and quality...and like JDT said also, since he is custom building them one at a time - you can get it made to your specs.

    Here is the link:

    This is his first try at selling on eBay...I know he sells mostly on Craigslist (Tulsa area) and also just by word of mouth and recommendations from satisfied customers like me .

    The only issue for you would be getting it to your area...but with THIS kind of savings, you could drive there or even ship it and still come out WAY ahead!!

    His description in the auction doesn't do that model justice, IMO - but this Craig guy...he's not much for getting long winded on the computer, emails, etc. However, call his cell and he'll talk you to death about what all goes into these smokers. [​IMG]

    I would bet the reserve on that auction is around $1,500...although the one he quoted ME for $1,600 included a propane fryer burner and a 18 x 24" charcoal grill also, to be mounted on the other side of the smoker.

    I am doing research now, because I think I'm going to pay $125 - $150 extra to make my trailer model a reverse flow. I just need to get a few more good pictures of a Lang to email this guy, so he can do it right for me [​IMG]

    Good luck with your search.
