My New Build

   My new build is a 6' Rottisserie with a top mount warming box, and a rear mount firebox. It has 4 air intake dampers on the fireboxand 4 dampers between the firebox and cooking chamber. The rottisserie will turn at 1 rpm. Pull one lever and the firebox will dump ashes out the bottom.

   It will eventually be on a trailer with a custom built 2' x 4' charcoal grill, 3 gas burners for deep frying, SS refrigerator, and sink with hot and cold water. The trailer will have a roof with sides that will fold out to make a 4' overhang roof down both sides of the trailer.

   It is definately a project in the works, but the smoker is now ready for high temp paint.

   I will post updates as the build continues along with more pictures.

   Thanks for all the great comments. Yeah I'm having fun building it. I'm building the stainless shelves for it now.

When finished it calculates out to holding 800 lbs of butts at one time. Trying to decide if I want to use high

temp paint or to powder coat it. Either way I'm anxious to try it out. I'll post more pictures as it progresses.

I'm stuck for words. What everyone else said. It is a thing of engineering excellence and Frank LLoyd Wright could have designed it. 

Inside shots please.

High temp paint on the firebox. High temp powdercoat desigh on the cook box.

Or all flat black and watch people stare.

This smoker looks great. I really like that warming box up on top.

Can you get some more pics that show more details? Would like to see the ash dump and the rottisserie.

Ok guys, I got it finished and used it for the first time. Can't believe it works so good, it holds perfect temp all day on very little wood considering its size.

It will eventually be put on the larger trailer as I stated in my earlier post, but I got the smoker finished and was forced to build a temporary trailer so I could use it.

The rotisserie is sweet, no hot spots, no moving food around the cooker, just fire it up and adjust the air to maintain the temp. I cooked some 3-2-1 ribs, a turkey, some chicken leg quarters, some hot wings, and a couple butts. All turned out great. Needless to say, I ate too much over the weekend.

Here are more pics along with some Q-View. Darn, I looked at the pictures when posting them and got hungry all over again.

Fantastic workmanship !!!!!

Do you load your chicken to one far end and use all racks to prevent cross contamination? 

And heres the big question.......

Any chance you would share your design ideas for your rotisserie arms that the selves hang from?

I would love to check out how you did the spider.
