I like the kerf cuts to bend that square tubing to the contour of the trailer! Are you going to fill in the cuts with JB Weld or Bondo and paint over it? I'd hate to see moisture get in there and rust it fromt he inside out after all of that hard work you're putting into this build!!!

Oh..ha..Of course! The tires that were on it were shot. I bought these two used tires so we could get it home. We are definitely going to by four new wheels/tires.

It looks great and I really like how the firebox came out here. Having studied the Jambo's as well, I think you have it nailed. Its gonna cook great. Get yourself some cheap biscuits and start testing the temps on that sucker. Be sure to shoot some pictures at night with the firebox lit up. It will look great!!
I'm with you all the way on that. We didn't weld the stack to the elbow. We'll find a way to rig it so that we can get her on and off..maybe a pipe flange on the stack itself.

When we get her fired up, I'll definitely get some biscuit shots and some night glow action posted for you guys!

You're absolutely right. I'm thinkin JB Weld. It's quick and easy...cheap too.

For the removable stack issue...could you weld a smaller diameter section of pipe to the elbow, say 6 or 8 inches long, and then slide the 3' stainless piece over it when you were ready to cook?

CQ is right. This is the same thing we did. We have a chunk that sticks up out of the smoker that the chrome stack slides on over. We can remove it and store it in the toolbox when we are traveling. Pics coming soon.

It's funny you guys mentioned that. That's basically what we did. There's a smaller piece of pipe about 3 or so inches tall welded to the elbow. I guess I was just wanting to find a way to lock it in place or bolt it down.

What about making a collar with slots in it and welding studs to the stainless pipe so they interlock when you twist the stack? Maybe do the slots the stainless rides in at an angle so it creates locking pressure as you twist it into place?

The only thing with dropping the stack over a stub coming up is the grease that will collect on the inside of the stack and leak out the botton. If you sliped it into a sleave the grease would go into the smoker and out the drain

Ours is a really snug fit. I don't even think water would run through it. It takes finesse to get the stack on. If we remove it from time to time, we can just give it a wipe down.

CQ: Great idea. A twist lock would work better than bolting it down. That would keep it in place just right.

Thank you, thank you. The mineral board should be a bit cheaper than that. You can find ceramic wool for close to that price (which is more heat resistant). We got ours from a local supplier here in Springfield. I'd check around your area and see what you can get. Check under insulation or insulator in the yellow pages. That might turn up some results.

Today we focused on doors and cooking surface. Short day but we did okay. It's looking more and more like a machine every weekend! I recently found out that we're going to be cooking 200+ lbs of meat on this bad boy in may, so we really have to knock this out as soon as possible..It won't likely be complete by then but it'll be ready to cook on for sure.

Here we go:

These first two shots are just quick looks at the walling. Stainless steel baby! Just kidding..it's just plain ole' sheet metal. They aren't fastened yet but I figured I add them so you guys could see how high the storage will be and to give you a faint idea of what it's going to look like.




This is a shot of how we've decided to do our hinges..just a long piece of round stock with some small pipe cut and slid over the round stock. I think the round stock is 1/2 and the pipe is 5/8..don't quote me on that though..



We got the frames made for the cooking surface. Because the chamber bowed after we cut the doors, we had a little extra work..The doors presented a much bigger problem and still need a little more finessing.



The surface is made up of 4 of these pieces. About 27"x18" each.



The last few shots here are just showing you what the inside looks like with the cooking surface laid down. The last pic is a bit blurry but that's okay...






There you have it, folks! Movin' right along!

With everything we are putting on it, I'd say it will be every bit of 2500lbs. We still have a lot to add and I'm sure its over 1500lbs already..That's my guess anyway..
