Default Odd Competition Rigs

Hi,

If you are aware of an odd or unique smoker and have some info on it or the owner, please post that info here or pm me.

We would like to have a feature in issue four of Smoke Signals about idiosyncratic rigs and the people that manufacture and use them.

Thanks!

Eric

I'd start with Dave Klose. He has a section on his website called unique pits. (beer bottle smoker, Continental Airlines Smoker, Baby carraige smoker, mail box smoker, Chuck Wagon Smoker, Train Smoker, etc)

There was a cooker out at Great Bend this weekend that looked like a big rodeo bull bucking with his back feet in the air. I don't know whose it and I forgot to take a picture. Maybe someone else who was out there knows?

Lion Bout The Q had a smoker that was shaped like a giant beer bottle. I don't know if he still uses it since he bought his FEC.

There's one in TX and I missed getting a pic last 2 times I saw it. Then I found out the guy has the same last name as me. Not very common, so it may be a cousin.

Cooked next to a guy in Bakersfield who had just modified a rolling toolbox and was cooking on it for the first time.

PM Rub-A-Dub. He works for an electrical utility and built a smoker out of a massive transformer cabinet. I don't have a photo of it, tho.

I cooked from across a gentleman that had converted a huge semi truck fuel tank in to a vertical smoker. Talk about a UDS, it was huge. If a UDS is 55 gallons, this must have been over 100.

Wish I could remember who it was or had a picture.

There's a team around here somewhere called Swine Flew. They've been competing for many years and their smoker is an old airplane. Someone at the Royal in 2008 was featured on the news cooking in the trunk of a classic car.
