New here from IL

Hey everyone found this site while searching for info on building my first trailerable bbq smoker, seemed like a good overall site for everything bbq.

I have had a couple cheap side burning pits purchased at the box stores and now am using a cheap vertical smoker that I converted to use as a electric also.

I am currently looking for parts to begin my build, I plan to use a stand up commercial food warming unit or something close to this as my cooking chamber. Will post some puce once I get things gathered and begin building.

Welcome over here. Drag up a keg of black powder and have a seat up next to the fire..lol Now aint no need for a person to break a nail and run up big laundry bill on trying the do it yourself thing. The mighty Fred is up for a new adoptive family. Only cost about 3 k to pay off his ob/gyn birthing down at the welding shoppe. Maybe even throw in a few dust collectors he has gathered. The free sales brochure is only five bucks. Let me know thanks. He will need a tank to air up his tires etc. This was him before the 300 dollar slide out rack transformation. I know about Salugis and such stuff.

Forgot to mention, I've been doing a lot of work for a good sized tree outfit and have been stacking Hickory & Apple with a little cherry also!

Job bonus & one of the reasons I want to build a bigger bbq smoker.

If everything works out I will have 3 CC with one warming chamber over the FB
Then again I may end up with only 2 of the units. There like 32widex36deepx52"tall will shelfs to slide racks on every 6" stainless steel also.
