It is done and it is good!!! We installed my FEC 100 inside the trailer yesterday. We had to build a platform for it to sit for two reasons. First, the exhaust was right up in the prep table's business and, two, the floor has a beaver tail. The pit doesn't leak smoke inside unless you open the door of course, but it's not real bad then. I'll put a roof top vent with a fan just above the pit door to help with any smoke on the inside It was a pretty smooth install. It works great. Here are some pics.

I am impressed. I had no idea a FEC100 would work in an enclosed trailer like that.

Very sweet trailer you are putting together.

Looks great RCS! And the inside of the trailer doesn't fill up with smoke when you open the door?

Those roof vent fans will pull it out

Nice install, but may i suggest a 90* elbow instead of the snake pipe.

I have a 5" 90 and it takes up too much room. This works best.

Looks great...

but is there any chance that the smoke will gradually make a stain on the outside trailer wall considering the direction of the outside exhaust vent ?

Jeff, of (former Bubba and Jeff's) did his exactly like this and has over a years worth of cooking on it. I thought his would stain too but was suprised when I looked it over. There is no visible stain to date. I am going to keep it wiped down after each use still.

Be sure and install a carbon monoxide monitor. Looks good.

Get some clear plastic sheeting to put under the vent outside, change annually and it'll always be very clean. Nice build, very jealous Scott

Wow Jim that is all looking great. Do you ever think back when you used to cook on your little brinkman or your oil drum smoker out in the yard? You have really come a long ways from those days, kudos. Now lets go cook something.:icon_cool

I will never forget those days Dave. I've been through a lot of pits in the last few years...and one even almost killed me. They're kinda like women.LOL!!
Come up to Fulton and hang with me on the 24th and 25th.

Good lookin set up. Yea, you'll be running an exhaust fan - mark mounted on right over his cooker. Amazing how many little leaks you find once it is in an enclosed environment.

Awesome job man! you are gonna love it.

Ok I have a memo penciled in on my calendar. Just tell me you will have the wet bar installed by then and well stocked. :icon_clown

Just what I was thinking. Dont cook with the doors shut to long.

You did some nice work, wish I had the space at the place for a trailer, sure would make competing and getting old go eaiser!
