  1. Looks awesome Ryan87. You're making good progress. Can't wait for the Que view. It should be ready for the BBQing season and I know you are.
     
  2. Sick smoker! The drilled out handle is pretty badass. Where did you get the firebox air flow flow controllers?
     
  3. Looking really great. I like that handle too! Yeah, where did you get those vents?

    Now that looks incredible.  The handles are super cool, and will look great!  Excellent workmanship, quite a craftsman.

    You got some cooking space on that rig.  Nice build. 
     
  8. I just recently purchased a 1,000, 500 and 250 gallon propane tanks for $150 dollars! The next build will have rotating shelves ran off of a electric motor! Should be interesting at the very least ha. Thank you for all the compliments, any questions feel free to ask

  13. Ok!! Here are the completed pictures of the smoker, high temperature paint on everything and rhino liner on the neck and platform for added grip in cold/wet weather cooking conditions! I also rhino lined the inside of the fenders.

    Tomorrow I need to get a exhaust clamp for the smoke stack and pick up our new vent covers. The ones we had we painted black, and decided they needed to go back to original. I will post some more pictures of the smoker tomorrow in the sunlight once all the rhino liner and what not dries! I also will have it wired tomorrow with the clear led brake/turn signal lights as well as get it weighed for the trailer license!
     
  14. And dont mind how dirty the shop is haha
     
  15. Great job Ryan. If you are planning a rotisserie, check this one out.

    I will be adding onto the smoker here in the next few weeks! Plan on adding a stationary commercial grill in front, deep fat fryer, and a few other goodies as well as making some small modifications to the counter weights due to some warping of the metal!
