Default Brinkmann Southfork.

I found this classic Brinkmann on Facebook marketplace place, cheap. It was five hours away, one way. Undeterred I made the deal and drove down to Nashville to pick it up. A little surface rust, but otherwise in great shape. I Spent some time with the grinder and wire wheel. Repainted with Krylon high temp grill paint. I also made a convection plate based on what Horizon sells. I also changed out the steel wagon wheels for some rubber tires. It rolls much better around my gravel drive. I can move the 700lb monstrosity by myself now. I still need to add a probe port and I think I will be done.

That is one funky (in a good way) looking smoker! I like it.

Nice find and rebuild. Worth the road trip it appears. Congratulations!

Curious as to where you sourced the wheels?
I need to replace the stock steel wheels on an Oklahoma Joe, and those look much better than a solid rim pneumatic tire.

They are wheelbarrow wheels. I found them at Menards. They are not cheep at $40 each but a rated to 300 lb a piece. Greaseable ball bearing. I figure it'll save me in medical cost, trying to move that heavy smoker. I should also note they are 15 and 1/2 in versus the 16 in wheels that I took off. It doesn't sit quite level now but it is slope towards a drain on my unit so I'm good with it.

Thanks for the wheel info Shannon. All good points.
Especially the saving the back part.
Been threatening to change the wheels out for while, but seeing your post, has been the catalyst to actually get it done. Proof positive that a picture is worth a thousand words.
Thanks again.

Yep 1/4 steel. Basically an Horizon Ranger. It would have been built by Roger Davidson (Joe Davidson's brother aka Oklahoma Joe) back when Roger's smokers were sold under the Brinkmann name.
