    Big Ass Smoker Build



    Did some barter work for this heavy duty trailer, tandem 7500 lb axles, so wtf should I do with it?



    Oh I have an idea! Why don't I put it in the $#@!ing ditch five minutes after I pick it up? Wrong ball goddamnit.



    Well thanks to Cletus and a case of silver bullet, back on the road to Sabinal to pick up this beast. 575 gallon propane tank.





    Old wood off, new wood on. Cleaned up and painted frame underneath, plus fixed some $#@!ed up wiring.

    So your going to cook inside of a tank that used to contain natural gas and other stuff (do they put mercaptans in tanks that size for a warning smell?)? You're not the least concerned?

    Put some legs on it. You can see by the blue tape that we originally had it laid out for three doors, but we change it to two.



    Scraping paint sucks $#@!s. I don't know how you navy guys do it all day.





    $#@! that let's cut some doors in this fat $#@!. Door number one. Works great, except it doesn't. Hinges suck. But we're stubborn, so we just keep cutting and welding till we get it right.

    Before you start really working on it, you can just fill it all the way up with soapy water. That will force out any gas that might still be in there.

    Edit: this was in response to ut ob1's post.

    Easier to just drop a lit match in. Burn all that gas off. Please have someone hold your beer and record in landscape mode.

    Welding a piece of flat stock under the top of the door. The rest of the door will have flat stock on the outside to cover the gap.





    Back on the trailer.



    Cutting out for the fire box. This fire box is gonna $#@!ing huge, basically 36"x36"x36" give or take.



    And there's the cut out. It's a little off on one side, but that's an easy fix. Fire box is going to be built out of plate, we should be starting on it this week.

    It's been sitting empty for a long time, but yeah the first cut was definitely a "hold my beer" moment.

    Not concerned at all. Put a couple bags of charcoal and some wood in the cook chamber and burn all that $#@! out.

    Yes. Mercaptin will impregnate the metal. After reading about it, it looks like most recommend a hot burn off period after getting it set up.

    Burning a new pit out is sop before you use it or should be.

    Yeah it's a 2 5/16 hitch, I had a 2" ball and didn't even look. Crossed a little bridge and whammo $#@!er comes off, slams into my bumper and then straightened out the hooks on the safety chains. Tongue stuck in the mud in the bar ditch. So I just sat there feeling like aggy until a redneck showed up.

    Not really. We do a cookoff here and there, and I've catered a couple weddings, but mostly it's a neighborhood $#@! measuring contest and we like to build stuff while we drink.

    I was just surprised you didn't know people make pits out of propane tanks. I would bet you have had brisket that was cooked in one at some point.

    Yeah, never heard of it. Little googling shows it to be common. A guy from work wanted to take some scrap 36" pipe that used to hold a bunch of bad, nasty, make-you-sick stuff to make a smoker. "Uh... No" was the answer.

    Out of pocket at this point is about $700. For the trailer we traded about $1800 worth of work, but mostly in our spare time so didn't really lose money.

    We still need some plate, and some 8" pipe for the chimney. Then it's down to miscellaneous crap like thermometers, drain, welding consumables, etc. That's just to get it cooking. The roof, counter tops, storage, bar, $#@! we can go on forever. Goddamnit I hope my wife doesn't read this.

    There's a franklin smoker-build video where he uses a propane tank

    A lot of BBQ places, including Franklin's, cook on pits made from 1,000 gallon tanks.

    Lol. I was about to say that the redneck was there all along. J/k Interesting build. That's gonna be a hungry beast. When you get tired of it you probably could sell it to someone wanting to start a BBQ joint.

    Cut the wood out under the fire box and added some angle and 1x2 tubing to support the bottom plate.



    Bottom plate of fire box tacked in. It's actually bigger than the footprint of the box itself, but that seemed the easiest way to support it. We're thinking about cutting the tacks and bolting it down instead of welding in case we ever need to pull the pit off the trailer.

    Have you seen the Franklin episode where he builds a smoker? He makes a double walled firebox by putting a smaller diameter pipe inside a larger piece of pipe. I've been interested in trying one out since then to see how much better it holds in heat.

    Haven't seen his, but I've seen other guys do that. The box is going to be big enough to build a smaller box inside of it if I feel like I need it. At this point I have no idea.

    be cool if the inner firebox were shaped like a $#@!.

    also, I wonder what the heat would do to the bolt threads. still, easy removal would be a good thing, to replace heat damaged plates. as if I know what I'm talking about.

    carry on, sir.
