Only downfall I've noticed is the some bish sure puts a hurting on my wood pile.

I think my sleep intervals went for 4 hrs to 2 hrs with the verticle addition.

The cooker cooked well. The firebox was plenty big enough and I actualy ran a dampner of the exhaust. Fire was hot enough to ignite some of the treated boards on my trailer deck. I solved that problem with water and some aluminum foil Laughing

I don't like it......I love it Laughing If you could post some sizes and dimensions that would be great. I started another thread asking about putting a 250 gallon on a trailer this size but I REALLY appreciate your design on a trailer this size. I was also wanting to add like a 24"X60" "Santa Maria" type grill for burgers on one side of mine. This build looks feasible to be able to do so. So things like trailer size, fire box dimensions, smoker and verticle sizes would be much appreciated. Thank you and great build.

The cooker itself started with a 24 x 24 round firebox, onto a 24 x 48 horizontal (with tuning plates) and goes to a 28 x 28 x 50 verticle. I attached it to a 5 x 10 angle iron utility trailer simpley by bolting it down through the wood decking and angle on the trailer. I did cut a section of wood out for the firebox to drop below the deck.

I'll work on a link to the whole build here in a minute. I've got posts and pics all over this site Laughing

I think it looks like one of those spy pix you see on a not yet released for production prototype sports cars. Seriously tho, nice build.
