Nice concept but no way I'm firing a smoker box next to the bumper of my truck.

But that's a Chevy so I'm sure he's use to stuff falling off. <Sorry, that was too easy>

That's a Brinkmann Cimarron Deluxe. I just restored a non-Deluxe model and I really like it, 1/4" steel. If you buy it have someone there to help you load and unload it as it's very heavy for it's size. Mine was much more rusty than this one, had it sand blasted then painted. Looks like brand new, maybe better?

It was love at first site. Bought it today. Gonna pick it up tomorrow. Poor guy hated getting rid of it -- said it's bullet proof. He said his fav thing is that it holds a temp for hours and hours. It's about 12 years old.
So what's the story on rust, does it affect the flavor? Owner said he'd hi pressure wash it periodically and then bbq paint.

I'll put some more pics up of the innards once I get it home.

I really like the idea of it but question why you need and offset to get that done.... plus, as stated earlier, the welds are very amatureish.... I can weld that good and I suck!

It's never about "Need" is about "Want"!

I was thinking the EXACT same thing, especially since they appear to be the typical Harbor Freight tire..

Booger welds are hard to look at but very cool idea for tailgating or small gatherings. Il
Like the creativity.

That looks like the fancy version of the Cimarron. I have the plain jane:



These are basically OK Joe offsets, made by the same workers in the same shop, before Brinkmann reneged and downgraded the build quality and sent it overseas.

Ooops- I didn't see DriverWild's response.

Oh well, I guess mine confirms it.

I bought a Char-Broil grill/smoker off CL for $40 and love it -- looks like an offset but minus the firebox. Yes it's junk (though the thermometer isn't bad amazingly) .So now I want something similar, but with thicker metal and better sealing and engineering, yet I don't want something that need a monster truck to tow. If it's small, I know I'll use it year 'round.
I think Lowe's will have what you are looking for.It's an Oklahoma Joe's Longhorn. I got mine for about $350.00, and they delivered it right inside my garage for me for free.
