    After a month solid of a lot of work..  I finally got the trailer done, well pretty much.  Still a couple small things to do.  

    Won't go into any details as the whole step by step build is on another thread.

    http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/94419/rf-trailer-build-starting-it-s-getting-close

    So I will just show the pics.  I still need to clean up a few paint spots and do a little tweaking here and there and a couple more options added that will cost a couple bucks, but I am done for a while.

    Thanks everyone.  

    Lugnutz, they do both slide out.  I took a could short pieces of angle iron and flipped them over and welded on the rails.  This forms a channel so I can slide the grates most of the way out and not have them fall out.  I wanted to use channel as my rails, but didn't want to spend the extra money.

    Man I need something like that ( ok..need is kinda strong...want is more like it, then again I don't need a 45 cal pistol capable of takin down deer at 150 yards but I got one) [​IMG]

    How do I sell this to the wife?? I sold her on the UDS cause it was a me and kids cheap project, I have almost sold her on a UDS cold smoker for sausage, but a smoker that can feed my town parked in my yard??????

    Man, Matt-you have come along way on this project from an old trailer and a rusty old tank to a real work of craftsmanship!!  Can't wait to see what you're gonna put on this thing for the maiden smoke!!

    Since I can't give you any point for this build, I clicked on the "thumbs up" icon at the bottom of your post. Now this thread has a 2 rating.  [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone.  I went to Sam's today scouting the meat selection and started recruiting buddies for an all nighter.  I got a big family/friend party this weekend and have been rushing to get this thing done.  After a few tweaks on it tonight, tomorrow starts the burns.  I figure I will be burning in this thing for the next couple few nights learning how it acts and then late friday or EARLY saturday I will be able to load the racks with goodness.
