Does anybody know who made this bbq smoker?

Postby stairway » Fri Aug 30, 2013 8:24 am

I found this on craigslist in Orlando and it looks like a decent enough pit.

The cost is $500, and the dimensions are as follows: Firebox is 21" x 20" and cooking chamber is 21" x 52". The seller says it was custom built in Texas but doesn't know who.

Does it look familiar to anybody, or can anybody tell me more information just by looking at it?
Does anybody know what that second smaller "door" on the left is, or the advantage of the extra long smokestack between the firebox and cooking chamber?

I do think that it is a homemade custom job, alot on craigslist. the pit looks to be a reverse flow style and looks to be a old water heater. i have no clue about the second door, kinda small. :dont: Is it worth 500, to me yes.
How bout some more beans Mr.Taggert? I'd say you've had enough!

I would take it off the trailer and make a backyard pit out of it. Then I would sell the trailer and bingo almost free pit :lol:
Thank You to all the fine folks here for all the tips and advice so I can now smoke a chunk of meat and folks actually eat it.
