    You need to conserve your wood for the fireplace? Smokey might decide it would make a great cat house and move in? It is built like a tank and we all know you Navy guys want things built like a battleship?

          Wowser that’s a pretty awesome deal. Be hard to pass up if I were a guy like you who could take advantage of a pit like that. Close to home too. My my. Thinking I’d be taking various trailer hitch combos and heading south.

          Good luck!

            It is, indeed, one Hailuvva Deal, Amigo!!!

            Definitely what makes it more difficult to resist...

            All I ever see fer online trailer smokers is various cobbled together things...total carpshoot...

            There's Math, Science, etc. involved in makin a cooker breathe right... not rollin that kinda cabbage on a homebrew, nossir...

          She's a beaut, Clark. I say if'n you have the funds then there's likely no better use for 'em than this, from my point of view anyway, having zero responsibility in the decision.

              Indeed, Brother!

              Best deal I've ever run acrosst on a trailer rig of any known mfr, an quality level...

              Kinda hard to ignore it, might tide me over til I can retire, move back down to TX, an git me an LSG, I'd reckon.

              Mr. Bones sorry to go the other way, but with a deal this good, ya might be able to use it fer a few years and sell it for what ya got in it. Then buy the LSG.

            From my rec-election of past posts here in this here webernet, you do street/neighborhood cooks. Would this fantabulous cooker meet those needs? Do you have a good source of logs to feed the beastie?

              I like to think it would buy me some much needed time, an not haveta run / regulate multiple dragons, under duress..., at least...there is, indeed, some dollar value in that relief.

              Wood?

              Mr. Bones I had to laugh at that wood question. So, you are all set with wood fer the 2020's. Now gotta look into the 2030's.

            Man....With the price of gas and the projected meat shortages it is going to cost you alot to drive there and then maybe you just will not find anything to cook on that beast. That is one fine looking cooker though and I am betting that if you have the itch nothing we say is going to stop you from scratching

              That thing looks mighty fine.....wondering why all pictures are inside? Hmmmm, new paint, refinished wood.
              Is there someplace to check if this one is just a little too hot?

                Looks like it lives inside.
                I kinda doubt that if it was hot, th seller would make it a point to post its Serial Number, but point well taken; don't leap blindly, without analysis: sometimes, ain't no water in th pool...

                Just be cautious. Data plate held on by pop rivets? No overspray on data plate?

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

            Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
