In a word 'funky' ... I like it! ...just needs some antennae and flashing lights

Have you tried it out yet? ... and if so what do you think of it?
i just sandblasted it on monday seasoned it on tuesday and wednesday it kept pretty steady temps from200 to 300 degrees depending on my air inlet on my firebox. will try it out for the first time on friday. i have painted it black, but i think i might change it to silver down the road, wildcat
Looks like a trick set up you got there. What is your firebox made out of? I assume for the smoker you modified one is that true?
I agree with the question about the firebox?

But I do like the 2 meat tray's; they slide out nice it looks like. Is there room to add more trays?

here is a early pic of the firebox, it is an 18 inch propane tank that has been grafted onto a twenty four inch tank that had been used for air. i have plans to add a wire rack on the front part of the upper grill that could be used to roast corn and other types of rabbit food i mean healthy food. wildcat
Nice job!!
I do appaud your fabricating skilz. I agree on the silver paint. You should stencil or hand paint the name tag on it.. Just another little feature. But dont smoke in it yet, or you will be like me every weekend I want to finish mine I fire it up and smoke again. 4 weeks now and still havent finished it yet....
but I have made some good smoke in it
thanx for all the suggestions. iwould love to hook up some temp sensative lights give me both the temp of the fire box and each grill at a glance, and keep the droid theme, i have a couple backup smokers i could use while working on this one but i have to see what it ca do now. ribs and butts first. wildcat is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
