Well, thanks to everyone here for the inspiration, ideas, calculators and all of the great build threads. I have been cooking on a Big Green Egg for years and decided that I needed something a little bigger. I soon found The Smoker Ring and away I went.


I then cut the firebox opening, fabricated some hinges and cut the doors.







i also got the legs built and got her welded in place. I couldnt help but the dimple dies to work.



I then had it sandblasted just to clean it up a bit.



I built the firebox and welded it up. Its 1/4 plate. The hinges are all 3/8 in plate that I cut w the bandsaw.













Next I put in the reverse flow plate and the drain. The smoker actually has two drains, one coming from the reverse flow plate one coming from the bottom of the tank.



Here is a link to a slideshow with 100 pics of the build so far.

I also added the smoke stack which I hvae now trimmed after a short test run.







I have since added the cooking grates, the fire box slides, the charcoal/wood basket and some shelfs to the outside. I am in the process of painting it and will get some finished pics soon.

Now that right there is a perfect smoker for me and probably a bunch more people here.

I agree this has the right features, is a great size and what I really like is it's a smoker <period>. Just what I had in my build plan. Excellent work and detail tsimon81. Simple clean build. Top notch!

One question... did that trailer start life as something else or did you build it up just for the smoker?
