    thats a big and heavy chimney, any concerns about it travel wise? wind resistance, overall weight and bouncing around while being towed?

    Eventually there's gonna be a roof on it, so the chimney will be braced to the roof framing. Until then it probably won't travel much.

    I cannot apologize enough for the goddamn la croix. Occasionally a split tail wanders in to the work area, asks a bunch of stupid questions and says we're dumb for building a pit this big instead of making drippy craft bull$#@! from Pinterest. So we lie about how much we've spent and shower them in sparks until they drop their fancy can of water and go away mad.

    Must spread rep, loving this thread. Have pondered some questions but it'd be like asking an arteest about a painting when he's not even close to being done with it yet. I did chuckle at the la croix, my wife keeps the garage fridge stocked with them

    If you do it right, this isn't a problem. You have enough beer & meat & wood loaded into the vacant space on the trailer to offset the weight. Simple engineering. Now going home is a different story but why worry about that now.

    Keep up the good work Paco. Building ours was one of the most fun things I've ever been associated with. The advice and ball busting that went on during the process was priceless and we all became better friends and drunks because of it.

    THIS is how it is done.

    wd40 needs to be invited to the burn in.

    I have to give paco some props. Watching the arcane measurements and markings that went into the miter cut on the pipe was enlightening. That sumbitch came out damn near perfect. Just in case he starts to get a big head, I have to point out that I'm sure the Romans or somebody developed the process 2000 years ago when they first discovered that $#@! rolled down hill.

    Definitely going to need to put some more weight on the front of the trailer. Door not even on firebox yet and you can lift the tongue off the ground with very little effort. It's coming together nicely, though. I'm just happy to watch it happen.

    East Texas Smokers puts a split plate baffle in them that can be moved around to create the same temp throughout or you can move the 2 plates around and create hotter/ cooler zones. It's really nice when you want to do ribs and chicken for instance. I can get mine to 250 on one side for the brisket and 325 or so for the chicken on the other side.

    I mean what do I know, I haven't used a welder since shop class in 8th grade and my trailer only weighs like 1400 lbs but I thought this was pretty normal?

    Once you get it all together, this needs to be addressed. I don't know what that firebox weighs but you don't want a ton of weight hanging on the ass end of the trailer. Carry on.

    Jokes aside, it's actually pretty balanced front to back at this point. The majority of the counter/workspace/storage will be at the tongue end, so there may be a little too much tongue weight when it's all said and done.

    The plan at this point is to build counters across the tongue end and about six feet down the left side. Including a sink, and a pressure tank for 30~ gallons of pressurized water. Then a smaller bar the rest of the way down the left side.

    All that being said, yes, we will definitely need to design the rest of the miscellaneous crap with weight distribution in mind. As for the weight side to side, there's only so much we can do. I really don't want to design a 1500 lb bar just as a lateral counterweight.

    tl;dr...if we $#@! it up it won't be the first time the trailer has been in the ditch.

    Pretty much every trailer pit I've seen is off balance side to side. There's just no good way to center the pit while still being able to use it.

    Jokes aside, it's actually pretty balanced front to back at this point. The majority of the counter/workspace/storage will be at the tongue end, so there may be a little too much tongue weight when it's all said and done.

    The plan at this point is to build counters across the tongue end and about six feet down the left side. Including a sink, and a pressure tank for 30~ gallons of pressurized water. Then a smaller bar the rest of the way down the left side.

    All that being said, yes, we will definitely need to design the rest of the miscellaneous crap with weight distribution in mind. As for the weight side to side, there's only so much we can do. I really don't want to design a 1500 lb bar just as a lateral counterweight.

    tl;dr...if we $#@! it up it won't be the first time the trailer has been in the ditch.
    Wait a minute - your smoker is going to have a bar? BRA-$#@!ING-VO!!!!!

    Due to rain and various other stupid ass circumstances we didn't get $#@! done for the past week or so. Last night we finally got some time in.

    Fire box door is mostly done, but we don't like it. We used 1/4" plate because that's what we had, but I think we're going to rebuild it with 3/8". And the air intake is going to change to pie pieces instead of a half moon.



    Got the angle iron for the racks welded in.



    And some of the flat stock for the door flange

    Big Ass Smoker Build

    Why rebuild in 3/8? Are you thinking the 1/4" won't retain the heat? That's gonna be one heavy sumbitch

    3/8" is the right call.

    It may be too freakin' heavy given the size of that fire box, but you may want to consider a 3/8" ash pan too.

    Well, mainly because we don't like the noise it makes when it closes. Yeah.

    So awesome. My suggestion is if you want that firebox removable, without using a torch, pin it down instead of bolting it.

    I'm totally dropping that in my next Constructability Engineering Design Review. "Go with 3/8" PL. Sounds better. We aren't bitches here."

    good call. 1/4" sounds like lightning. 3/8" sounds like thunder.
