Default 250 gallon Cooking trailer rebuild by TQ and Tyler

A gentleman approached me about redoing his cooking trailer. Basically he had a direct cook cooker that was made out of very thin metal (16gauge) We talked and decided to take a 250 gallon tank and build him a direct cook cooker to be used with charcoal and wood. I generally do not like to work on a trailer that has already been built because they are not up to my standards. I basically redid most of the trailer when I got into to it I could not stop just could not let it leave, unless it was up to my standards and I try and set em high. Me and Tyler are the only ones that touch our products and that is just the way it is. The challenge for me initially was I wanted to leave both endbells on and have acess to the grates and in doing so let it look like a craftsman did it. So we came up with a plan

Original setup

The beginning of the revamp

the back had wood in it I foud out why it was covering up a mess

starting the charcoal grate access

we bought this new machine last week and Tyler finaaly let dad use it


some welds with the new mig

the top grate is fixed and only 14 inches wide

charcoal and wood access

stack damper we made the stack look like a chimney

before i painted it

finished product

Bobby bobo was happy so I was happy

I always show what Tyler is up to.... Still building bumpers we help each other out kind fun

Tyler spraying abumper

we built boxes and bumper for this truck

just another bumper

This what Ashley Tyler girlfriend does while we work


that is a big deer for around here.

Thanks for looking, thanks to those who are praying for my wife, she starts chemo next thursday..... Keep on praying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And God bless... I hope I did not get the pics out of sequence I struggle with a computer give me a welder and I do just fine LOL!!!!!

A fellow brethern asked about a pig so we cut this out and sent to him, not bad for freehand on 16 gauge stainless
