the back of our trailers have a step in, this allows us to shift our cooker either way before welding down and gives us the desired tongue weight we like.

we cut our firebox and and warming chamber out as one unit, this saved on welding and sped up the process

the cutout on thhe warmer at the bottom gives easy accesss to wash and clean warmer out. The warmer door has a piece added to it to close this section off

Tyler cutting the doors, they sprung some then I got on the phone to my Buddy Kam and he headed me back in the right direction (Kam is a master at cookers and has helped me tremendously(

looking at the inside grease trap. This is welded soild and you could actually close the ball valve and fill with water if you chose to.

Sorry guys my pictures got out of sequence tried to edit but.... well if I could have welded the pics in I prolly would have don fine

What diameter pipe did you use for the chimney?

Funky D 10-02-2012 07:09 AM

Looks great!

Question for people who have this type of setup:

My offset has a large barrel, and a pretty thick firebox. To get my temps up high enough in the barrel, the top of my firebox is really, REALLY hot. In a design like this, wouldn't that make the heat in the chamber too hot to cook anything, except maybe chickens?

deguerre 10-02-2012 07:12 AM

OK. I'm impressed now. Officially impressed.

bluetang 10-02-2012 07:12 AM

Gorgeous!

TuscaloosaQ 10-02-2012 07:17 AM

KBird, the chimney is 6" pipe 35" tallnit drafts excellent.

Funky D I am not sure are you talking about my design or your cooker. I tis hard to say cause I do not know what kinda temps we are talking about. Personally I like reverse flow much better than an offset

TuscaloosaQ 10-02-2012 07:19 AM

bluetang thanks the contractor wanted crimson on the trailer and I really like it. Does anyone on this site know where to get high temp paint that can be custom colored for the cook chamber. I see cookers like this and would love to try and custom paint some. We do all our painting ourselves

TuscaloosaQ 10-02-2012 07:21 AM

deguerre Wow!! that makes me feel GOOOOOD Thanks for the nice compliments

cameraman 10-02-2012 07:30 AM

TuscaloosaQ - Try Goolsby Customs in Bessemer. I think he will custom mix any color high temp paint that you need. You may want to check with a body shop in your area first though since that will be closer. I have had Goolsby and Pleasant Grove collision mix custom high temp colors for me in the past.

By the way, the cooker looks great! You guys do fabulous work. What size grates are those?
I'm probably going to give you a call this week and come grab a tank from you.

OutlawSwine 10-02-2012 07:36 AM

Are you using 2x3 rectangular tubing for the trailer frame? It looks beefy.

TuscaloosaQ 10-02-2012 07:54 AM

OutlawSwine thanks for the tip on the paint. And yes we use tubing on all our trailers actually that is 2by4 11gauge normally we use 2by three but I had the 4" and went with it. You can get a tank anytime you want just let me know. The grates or made of 1" angel 1/4" angel thick using 3/4" #9 flat wire
