Just found this on Craigslist. I have zero training in propane or gas burners and this looks like a bad idea to me. Having propane burners inside a smoker chamber seems to be the fastest way to make a big explosion.
Any thoughts?

I agree with your analysis 100%. I wonder if that design has ever had a test run to see if the theory behind it might actually work. Really looks like a very amateur build, especially for big bucks like that.

In any case, I would not want to be anywhere near that thing when they fire it up. Shocked

In general, probably a pretty bad idea, but if you get an operator that knows what he’s doing and has a bit of common sense, I can see that it would have its appeal; I’ve got a propane grill just for quick hamburgers and such, I can see the benefit of having that on my “regular” smoker, but there would be a lot of risk if you try to mix the two functions, rather than just have dual capabilities.
