Default Anyone have plans for a propane tank smoker?

Id love to build one.I would absolutely love to be able to have a large smoker attached to a trailer that could possibly do a whole hog. My UDs wont do a whole hog.

Anyone have plans for one? How would I go about building one? I may be way out of my league doing this.

I'd say go for it if you're a skilled metal fabricator and a good scrounger. Lots of guys have built their own cookers and got great results. Here are a few links:
