http://www.beamscustomsmokers.com/ I saw someone selling a smoker made by this company on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/BBQ-Smoker-Trailer-/270621853663?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0#ht_500wt_1182 the price was unbelievably cheap. I was half looking into one from them but the old saying "If it seems to good to be true, it probably is" rang in my head. Let me know if you have any experience with these smokers. Thanks in advance.

I'm looking at the size of that thing - and then looking at the stack size - and placement.

Maybe that rig leaks like a sieve so the stacks are redundant, but they sure look undersized - and what are they doing smack in the middle of the cook chamber?

Cheers

I like them and at a good price. If you do not pay until you receive your product what do you have to loose? Looks of great deals on craigslist and ebay from welders so I don't think they are too cheap.

When I bought mine it was actually a toss up between these guys and Bellfab. I ended up going with Bellfab because he could give me a bigger diameter and thicker steel. Beam has one on the very top of there page that is 1800 it's the offset with the rib box on the opposite end of the firebox. When I was talking to the lady about buying that one she was selling them for 1400 because it was out of season. So if you wait till around Nov you may be able to save several hundred dollars. Or because you are in IL you could contact www.bellfab.com guys name is Craig. He's out of Tulsa so you could pick it up and save a gang of money rather than getting it out of AL.
