Plans for smokers

I am interested in building a new smoker.

I would love to build something a bit unique just for the fun of it.

I have seen it where someone took an old '51 Ford pickup turned the engine area into a firebox, emptied the interior added racks, blacked out the windows and added smoke stacks to it.

Has anyone seen any other ideas?

I've never seen anything like that but I must admit, as much as I love smoking and the end results of my time and efforts doing it, if I were fortunate enough to aquire something as nice as a 51 Ford pick up I wouldn't be hanging meat in it. Just one mans opinion.

Those were the pictures I was looking for. I thought I saved them somewhere but could not find them. Do you have the site that those came off of?

After seeing the outhouse idea it has me thinking when I get working on the 2nd tear and 3rd maybe I could find a way to build a smoker into the look of it. The fire box is what I can not figure out. I want to build a bar area and I think it would be cool to have part if it be the smoker its self.

Sorry for the long delay in re-checking this thread... but, those pictures came from e-bay. I have an awful habit of saving pictures of interesting smokers that I come across... I have several more of that particular smoker if your interested...

I don't think that it would be that difficult... you have an enclosed area, a fire box, a fire... what is tough about that?

James, I have the same habit of collecting pictures from the Internet. I have loads of smoker pics. I just have a poor filing system when it comes to trying to find anything.

Bob or James have you been able to find any of the old pictures that you could share?

That's the coolest smoker I've ever seen.
It would be really cool to just make a smoker out of the bed of a truck and drive it.

Thanks Moltenone,

I am really interested in something that is as much a conversation pieces as it is a smoker. That is why I like the pick up idea.

Some day if I find an old truck I may do something like this.

How about a motorcycle. Put the firebox in the frame and a long barrel on top to cook in.
