Default OMOSB - "One More Offset Smoker Build"

Greetings Gents,

Been lurking for a while now, soaking up all the great info here on the forum. Decided after cooking on a couple smaller smokers that it just wasn't cutting it. Also a couple friends kept saying you should go try the competition side and see how you do.

Got a look at some of the prices on the commercial stuff and then saw some of the outstanding smoker projects on here and said what the heck. I really like the Jambo J5 style smokers but the pricing was a bit more than what I wanted to spend. Even still, I really like the layout and design!!

A very nice example of a Jambo J-5 style smoker.

So with that in mind, I picked up a couple components to get me started.

First up. The tank. Its a 68x24 inch air tank.

The local auction side had one 50 miles away.

Next we picked up an older Energy Mate double walled wood burning stove. I figured this would save us some time on making the firebox.

Lastly I snagged an older heavy duty single axle boat trailer from the load marine dealer. This one was really nice since the price was right and the tongue and axle can both be adjusted back and forth to balance the load.

A couple hours with the grinder and the plasma cutter was all it took to get the trailer down to bare bones so we can test fit the smoker and fire box.

Looking forward to this build. Between you and Ryan (Speers90), you have stoked my inner fire to build my own. I have the welders and a plasma cutter, I just can't find a tank.
