Guys!

Please start another thread and bitch there. I think it is quite unfair to take over my build thread with this crap.

Smootz -
Trailer looks good. I think you're downplaying it some by calling it a dolly. It has all the attributes of a bonafide trailer: full axle, suspension, frame, tongue (though unfinished in the pics). It appears well laid out and balanced. I would have no problem trusting it on the road. Well done IMHO.

I've been watching your build closely. I like the overall design, especially the trailer. It seems when you get that size its too hard to move around without a trailer. I just scored a 120 gal tank that was made in 1947. The wall thickness is 5/16 The tank alone weighs 320+ lbs. I cant see anything but a small trailer to move it. I hope you post more pics. Thanks Man. Wink

From that way I read the trailer comment,I think what was meant is the trailer is too simple for the design and workmanship that went into the smoker.I belive and understand it's what the customer wanted,and if it's meant as just a way it move the smoker across the yard or over to the park,they why build it fancy when simple works just fine.I think the trailer comment was meant as a complamet.(or aleast it should of been).
As far as the comment about know wonder the isn't much activity on this forum.WHAT!This is the most active forum I have been on and I go to many with diffrent subject types.there is always 10-20 new post on the SR forum.
LONG LIVE THE RING! and if you want to hit and run do it somewhere else!

Great lookin' build there Smootz. Your work has always impressed me. No matter if ya usin' a CNC plasma table or a hacksaw, you know how to put it together well my brother.

Bad thing about internet is some folks take crap personal and feel they have a right to post about it and make it public when they should just hold their tongue. Guess it's easier to flex the ol' epeen knowing nobody can reach through the monitor to choke ya, lol. Sorry these folks are making your build about them instead of appreciating the work ya do. Hold the course man and keep them builds coming. I look forward to them.

Catman, Awning Guy, Daddywoofdawg, MongoNC,

Thanks for the encouragement. I think this thing will look a little better once the paint and a few remaining details and accessories are done. More importantly I am anxious to see how it cooks. I have tried to combine the things I like about some other builds here with a real effort to stay right on the sizes suggested by the pit calculator.

Wreckless, KAM, Cat797, DoctorGrill, Awning Guy,

Nothing better than praise from mentors and peers. Thanks for the kind words.

Cat797 - I have been trying to think of a name for this little guy. If you don't mind my springing off of your description I think "Party Pit" fits it well.


Food pics and performance results have been promised by new owner. If he comes through I will post them.

I like this size cooker. Nice simple trailer. Nice little out of your way shelf to the side. If I were the customer I would be very pleased. The only change in design I would have asked you to make would have been for the tongue to either come off or fold. I come from a long line of clumsy people. I have the scares on my shins to prove it.

I was raised in SE Ohio. People here in VA don't get as into the college teams.

I live on the Ohio/Kentucky border so there are lots of folks round here that would prefer a blue team logo. Of course I doubt that UK Wildcat blue was what you had in mind. Laughing
