Default New smoker

Hey everyone I am hoping you guys can help. I am looking for a new smoker to purchase I have about $1000 to spend. I want a reverse flow that can do about 2-3 butts 1-2 briskets and maybe 2-3 racks of ribs. I have been searching everywhere trying to find something decent. Please help if you know of anywhere.

Also would like to have it on a trailer or the ability to mount it to a trailer.

Not sure how far that is from you but Meadow Creeks make a great smoker, just $$ however this is a pretty good deal from one of their dealers and it is fresh paint from Meadow Creek.

Finding a reverse flow trailer model for $1000 is going to be a tall order unless you build for yourself

In starting to get that feeling. I'd even be happy with a offset really doesn't have to be reverse flow

That's why if you could find a friend that could weld you could build your own and add what you want for yourself
