Advice for a 36" pipe

Postby jason3856 » Thu May 11, 2017 10:25 am

I am looking for some advice on what is the best design for my piece of pipe. I currently have a 36" diameter pipe that is 6' long that has 1/2" end caps that is already welded on. This is from a friend that started on it and decided it was going to be to big for what he had in mind so therefore it was given to me. If this was given to you what would you do with it? What style cooker would be ideal for this size pipe? All advice is greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing the feedback and starting this project.

All I can think is that that sucker needs to be on a trailer! Beyond that, I'll leave it to some of our more creative members.

Without a doubt that will be on a trailer. I have a 18' trailer with 2-3500lb axles. Hopefully that will handle it.

Put a fire box on it and turn it into an offset stick burner. Put tuning plates in it, so it will cook even all the way across the 6 ft, and with 36 in pipe you should be able to 4 levels of racks in it, 3 for sure. Then fire it up and throw a big party with it.
