Ouch. I hope not. The axle is only rated for 3500lbs.

Very close. I am figuring on it weighing about that when completed and the rest of the aluminum is added back on and the other storage box is added.

Current total weight is 1620lbs. The aluminum tread plate saved us about 300lbs of weight.

You saved 300?!?! What ga are you using? I think all of my steel tread plate together only weighed about that much..its about 60 sq ft (give or take). You're overall weight is amazing though.. Very light.

Triple T this is an inspirational project, I am planning my own offset build shortly and will definitely be referring back to your work. I also hope to see your rig in person when you guys get to Rochester for the Med-City.

One question for you on your build though, are you concerned at all with the weight distribution on the trailer having the smoker and firebox all the way over to one side? I would expect that the wood/storage side of the trailer will be significantly lighter than the "business side". Maybe its a non issue or you addressed it some other way but I thought I'd ask.

Great project, thanks for sharing.

Man I thought for sure with the cooker and all the plating it would just be over 2,000!

HJ,

Thanks. I am figuring on the weight being a couple hundred off between the two sides. I also plan on weighing it across the axle once we get it loaded up. With the storage box and and misc tables and other items I am counting on it being somewhat close. The warmer will be on the rear on the right side so that has been calculated into the picture too. Just not done yet. The front to rear weight is pretty good right now and so far I have only had to adjust the axle back one inch. The tongue weight is 180lbs right now and I am shooting for 200 lbs or 10& at the end to keep it towing nicely. Its been down I90 at 75-80 already and it tracks like an arrow at the moment. Drop on by and have a cold one with us. Brethren and other fellow BBQ'ers are always welcome! Stop on by were ever we are cooking.

I don't think a fire will spike to 1500 degrees, but you never know right? Those wheels are just hot! I'm enjoying this build thoroughly. Just build another after this so it doesn't have to end!

Well someone would have to want to puchase this one from me before I would build another one, but then again I have seen a couple verticals on here that have sparked my interest too. Ya never know.

Hoping the paint works out.

Default Intermission - PRON

While we are waiting for the sandblasting and paint work to get done, I though everyone might enjoy a little BBQ Pron.

Working on our Pork Shoulder recipe some more, and a little brisket to boot. Since I had room on the smoker, we also did some hot shots.
