Default trailer build update

Found a 120 gal water tank free. many gallons of acid and many hours of grinding. Found a trailer free, frame bent but tongue, axle and hubs good. Found wood burning stove free, cut off excess metal. My buddy donated angle iron for new frame. Bought expanded metal for grates.

Yeah thats how I did it. I looked in Craigslist under oil tanks and found an unfinished smoker, a cheap trailer and a really cheap woodstove. I'll replace the axle and add more steel to the trailer but I think it will work out in the end. Good luck.

When I built the smoker I have now I lived near the water so I went to a ship yard and bought a piece of 24" pipe for scrap cost. One other thing you can try is to locate a company that services air compressors usually their yards are full of compressor units the removed. They might be motivated to make a donation if they were influenced by the right amount of ribs (this worked for me before) or brisket. When I built the smoker trailer I have now, I made a deal to cater a party for 30 people in exchange for a travel trailer. I got the trailer completely torn down only the floor with the stove the sink, hot water heater, pump and reservoir. all because I posted an add on craigslist.com it worked out for oth of us. I just made our maiden voyage to pork in the park. we didn't win but we sure weren't last.

Great ideas. I am building one now. Sure enought he boat axle would not have handled the wieght. I was able to get a new axle from a locale trailer supply. Thanks for the heads up.

Just like what the above post says, there are LOTS of build threads with neat ideas. If you do search for them and browse through it all you will be able to take the ideas you like and scratch the ones you don't and in the end will have a NICE rig with all the things YOU like.

There is a search tool at the bottom portion of the page and it will give you all kinds of results but if you scroll down the results you will see that it searches these forums EXTENSIVELY.
