My Dad’s Cooker (Gift)

My Dad gave me this cooker for my birthday back in 1998 I believe. It’s a propane cooker that I added the firebox to after he gave it to me. It has cooked hundreds of pound of meat.
it had started showing its age so I decided to refurbish it to its original condition. I think it turned out great (So good I hate to use it).
This maybe the best gift I have ever received. I can’t look at it without smiling and thinking of my Pop.

Take care,
Johnny Ray

It is a beauty! Who made it?
It was made by a company in eastern NC called Carolina Cookers. It has two burners running front to back. It’s designed for whole hog cooking. A burner under the shoulders and a burner under the hams.

Thanks,
JR

Nice looking rig! I can see why you're so proud of it, especially as a gift from your dad

Thank you. He called and told me to come get it. I drove to eastern NC and pulled it home. It has no leaf springs under it just a solid axel. 740 miles pulling a bouncing cooker. Bout shook my teeth loose. :emoji_astonished:
