Need advice on this smoker on Craigslist

The trailer smoker in the listing appears to be similar to the one in the post below. Hard to tell if the one I'm interested in would have poor flow, tack welded reverse flow plate? Don't know really what to look for in a pit this size. Not sure about how chrome inlets would work out with heat on the firebox. Any opinions or experience with SlingNSteel would be appreciated. Their Facebook page appears nice, but you can pay people to give ratings.

The one I was interested in is listed here by SlingNSteel.

Upon researching other pits, this one looks similar and have multiple fabrication locations.

As always buyer beware. I'd ask to take it for a trial run before buying. A lot of guys can weld some exceptionally well but know nothing about smokers and how they work.

The smokers are different one has firebox in the front the other one is in the rear.
Just reading about the one your looking at it doesn't seem to be a bad smoker.insulated firebox too...
But you would need to go look at it close and maybe also ask for references from satisfied customers.
Also on CL's the smoker in the picture is not always the smoker on location.

Thanks for he insight. I'm going to get a chicken cooker for now and try and have it welded to a future trailer as I sell BBQ plates.

Regards,
Caveman
