New Smoker/Catering Trailer is Officially Under Construction

Once again, after about a year of sitting, the smoker/catering trailer is finally seeing some action. After some minor changes to the trailer, we hung new axles under it and mounted the GM aluminum rally wheels.

The tank is 6 foot long by 30 inch diameter and will be used as the main smoke chamber. I cut some slots in the bottom, then welded a piece of angle iron over it to act as a drain channel. The legs were welded on while the tank was upside down. My btoher-in-law Steve and I took hauled to rig to his dads house and used his chain hoist to pick up the tank and stand it on the legs. It worked beautifully now and now the tank is mounted solidly to the trailer. The next step will be cutting the doors and building the slide out cooking trays. Pictures will be posted sonn, stay tuned..
