In case you're wondering that was an old decommisioned Highway arrow sign used in construction zones.
Here you can see the sign materials have been stripped from the trailer and we covered it with a quick coat of paint to prevent any rust from spreading.

Each cook chamber is separated and insulated with a minimum of 2" insulation. So each firebox is built to heat is respective chamber, holding approx one 20lb bag of hardwood charcoal. The design is likes stumps build only twice over in a trailer form.
We haven't seen where anyone else had done that in the past so we're not even certain it will work.

It should work fine, just basically 2 stumps in one big cabinet. I love the idea.

I'd consider doubling the insulation between them, and insulating the square tubing also. (looks like it may be too late, but you might be able to do it by adding another frame of tubing, for another 2" of insulation) That's assuming your doing separate chambers so you can run at different temps, which you wouldn't want any radiant heat to leach into the cooler chamber, and cause a hotter side in the cooler chamber)

We've definitely thought about that, and will probably just add 2" to the inside wall of each chamber for a total of 6" between the cabinets.

6" of insulation should be more than enough. This thing should be awesome.

What are the overall dimensions of the cabinet, and then dimensions of each cook chamber?
