So I have thought about this and I am considering an old chest freezer turned on it's side mounted on some sort of trailer. I am thinking of welding together a simple fire box - 1/4" steel. Then adding a BBQ Guru. That way I can still use wood. Still need to call the company to pick their brains. My biggest concern is not building something that will have to be tended every 15 min.
Sorry man but that was a good one!
I checked in to building a smoker out of an old fridge a while back.
It seems the models made in the 50's would be the best kind to use due to the lack of(as you mentioned) plastic and other sorts of bad stuff.
Good luck on your project.
