Awesome work. Very nice cooker. Question on the painting. Did you sandblast first? Prime it? Paint it yourself. I am working on my build and have to figure that part out. Thanks!

Default Trailer

Trailer bed is 60"x120"x3/16" diamond plate steel sheet. 2"x4"x3/16" frame. Rails are 1 1/4" x1/8" with 3/8" pipe runners. Axle torq 3500#. 16" aluminum wheels 235/55 tires. Low profile tongue box for storage. 24"X24" stainless table bolted to floor with sch 40 steel legs. Pit and table are removable. LED lighting. Bull dog hitch. It will store (2) 6' tables behind the pit standing on edge for travel. One problem I have encountered is the rails and runners. I did not want to use expanded metal, but now carrying wood is a problem. I may line the inside of the back compartment next to the fire box with diamond plated aluminum and pop rivet it in. Trailer ended weighing 1240#. If I were to rebuild the trailer I might make in a little more narrow. trailer.jpg

Default Paint

Paint, man, I hate paint! Everything was sand blasted. Pit sand blasted inside and out.
Trailer is a sprayed gloss black just an industrial paint/primer from local auto shop.
Pit well that is another story. I want a gloss finish to the pit. So, I started with KBS coatings Zinc primer and then charcoal metallic top coat. I tried rolling it on. It looked like crap. I loved the paint, but it must be sprayed, and I would say not can sprayed. So, I canned that idea and the money wasted on it. Sand blasted the pit (outside) back down to bare metal and painted with high temp rustoleum flat black (sprayed) three coats no primer. I am still happy with outcome, but wanted a shiny finish. Time will tell.

Default Firebox

Firebox, I want to be able to build a fire control it and not have to manage it every hour or so. After extensive research I built this. 24" x .375 pipe wrapped with 2" ceramic high temp insulation (ebay). Encased in the sheet metal box. Door is 1/2" with 22" ring inside (kinda like a safe door) with 1" of insulation inside. 2 vents. And a freezer door handle(ebay). Charcoal basket will slide in and out with back tabs for holding it in place to load. I have since modified the charcoal basket with a divider to get more of the minion effect (control over charcoal). Now I load with a bag of charcoal wood chunks for smoke and flavor and I can finish the cook with out a reload or any tending to the fire. In attached picture the charcoal and one piece of wood was the first trial run. I lit this with a weber chimney full of charcoal at 9 am when I went home that night at 6:30 it was at 210 degrees never did another thing to it (no meat on the pit dry run). Temp outside was about 50 degrees wind out of the north 15mph +.
