Custom BBQ Smoker
Hey All!!

I was over at Standard Wood Supply the other day picking up some hickory wood, and I noticed they had a little BBQ Smoker for sale on their lot. They want $2500 for it and they said it was on consignment. I would have been interested, but I'm looking for something a little bit larger. The guy that was working at the time said that the person who made it did not want to make a larger one. It is not a traditional BBQ smoker with the firebox on the side but instead has the coals underneath for indirect heat and the firebox pulls out so you can add more coals or wood. I know this is a design that may seem unique, but it is how I prefer to cook. If anyone knows the builder or knows where I can get one similar to that design, please let me know.

Nice looking rig.
How far from Murray is the place that has it? I may get my brother-in-law to go take a look. I like the size.

Cooker...
Not sure how far...not very, if this is actually the one that was at Standard.

What I really didn't like about this cooker was the placement of the fire. Looks like it's directly underneath the cooking racks, and runs the length of the chamber.

I'd prefer an offset style that can be both a stick burner or charcoal/chunks cooker...

My dream cooker would either be the Gator Pit Predator - <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://gatorpit.net/Predator_with_mods_3.jpg">http://gatorpit.net/Predator_with_mods_3.jpg</a><!-- m -->, or the Klose #4 Mobile Catering Rig - <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.bbqpits.com">http://www.bbqpits.com</a><!-- m -->.

Ah, it's nice to dream.

The Predator has it all... That's a nice dream.
Right now, my dream's a little smaller :lol:

James Morris, of Summertime BBQ and Catering, had a unit built locally. It might be something that interests you. Here's a photo:

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://bradakis.com/Images/summertime_bbq_rig.jpg">http://bradakis.com/Images/summertime_bbq_rig.jpg</a><!-- m -->

The firebox is directly under the racks, but there is a heavy steel baffle between the racks and the fire, open a few inches on each end. It did a pretty good job on the turkeys and hams we did for Thanksgiving. His web page and contact info:

One problem with his page is that he still has a 2 meg picture on the main page. It takes a while to load. I sent him a 35K version of the same picture, he'd get better resonse time if he used that one instead!

Thanks for the info Tuff. But since we had made that post we have actually purchased a few more BBQ's including a WSM, a new Char-Broil Propane Grill and a Lang Smoker Grill Model 60 w/ a deluxe warmer.

Bringing our total number of barbeques to a ridiculous amount of 7. And I "think" we are done now. But I have an obsessive-compulsive personality, so you never know.

Naw, Z & April... It's not OCD (obsessive/compulsive disorder)... IMHO, it's called having your perspective on life "just right"...

With you having 7 barbeque cooking devices of some sort, just color me green with envy, though, okay?! :mrgreen: How do you like your Lang, btw? You travel down to GA to pick it up? Or did you get it shipped out here somehow?

Dr. Mike

I really like my Lang, used it 2 times so far. I ordered it in March and had them deliver it. The delivery guy drove a 2 ton truck with my Q in the back and another one being pulled behind on it's way to Oregon. I was expecting to get a lot of practice in before i used it in a competition. But as all of you have noticed, the weather hasn't been very kind to us Q'rs. So far we like the results but haven't had much practice. I'm going to fire it up again tomorrow, i'm cooking a brisket April is going to do some some baby backs and my brother is going to throw a pork shoulder on it. Will let you know how it goes tomorrow.

I have! :o Some of the newer rigs they have are VERY nice. But I have recently talked t someone who actually cooked on one of their cookers and was less than impressed. I wouldn't mind having the trailer - and believe me, I looked very seriously into one a couple years ago - but I'd have to get a different cooker on it.

Well, the way that the cooker is designed forces you to shuffle the meat around, even though it's a rotisserrie.

He said that they loaded up the 6-footer with baby backs/loin backs, and by then end of the first load, all of the slabs that were to the rear of each shelf were black since they had passed directly by the heat source.

Once they got that figured out and shuffled the ribs around twice through the whole cook, he thought they came out fine but was not terribly impressed.

I don't mind having to tend a fire, but tend a fire AND move the meat is too much. Unless I got a deal too good to pass up. 8)
