Looking good. I am not sure what else is next but you might think about increasing the bracing between the tank and the 3x5 tubing you have coming up though the floor. Also watch the weight. That steel tread plate is not light. You may end up needing another axle if you keep going with all the steel. Just food for thought. Looking great.

What did you mean by increasing the bracing between the tank and the tubing? A vertical increase? We calculated the heighth of the 2x4 supports in relation to the box/chamber opening. The firebox is recessed 4in below the flooring with the 2x4 supports. I'll tell you what the plan is so far. We are of course going to weld the tank to the 2x4 piping (there are two of these supports). We are also going to take a heavy-duty 5 1/2in bolt and fasten it to the frame inside of each tube. Our grease trap will also be fed through the 2x4 piping to keep it hidden. We are going to be building closed storage space up about 14-16in high (this will be butted up against the back of the chamber and on the smoke stack end). The chamber shouldn't move, roll, or otherwise. What are your thoughts?

Also, we have two axels on the trailer..it's just hard to tell because we only have 2 wheels on it right now. We'll be getting the wheels as soon as we need them (who knows when that will be). If anyone knows where to getem' cheap, let me know!Thought about electric breaks, but we don't think we'll really need them.

i agree those 2 little rectangle tubes arent enough the side to side vibrations/wiggle will snap welds eventually, i would weld 2 uprights from frame to mid way up pipe on the back to reinforce and maybe the front also.
as for the double axle i didnt see it either in pics i must have missed it but u will prob need it, as long as your using a decent truck to pull you wont need brakes till 3000 lbs as long as your right foot behaves and you know how to drive with a trailer
I love build threads! keep going its looking great!

Thank you. I may install something to aid in this..maybe miter some angle iron for each end. after the framing for my storage goes up all around the back of chamber, I don't think I'll need anything around the back. The front..might be a safe idea!

The axle is hard to see but the tandem fenders are there. they just arent pretty yet

EDIT: the back support you have in the diagram is about as high as my enclosed (soundly framed) storage will be all along that side. This is what I was planning to use for back support. What do you think?

yes the frame from the storage area behind the pit would work great if you weld the two together! either way looking awesome, subscribed!

I was thinking about tacking it. Thanks for the support. I love getting suggestions or affirmations..It really makes you think the whole process over. Hopefully, during the build, I won't miss anything with all the watchful eyes! You guys are great!

Looks nice. I like that you have a trailer that gives you some space for storage.
