    Bell Fabrications Smoker

    After years of using charcoal smokers I finally pulled the trigger and decided to go with a good backyard offset smoker. After thorough research I was just about to buy a 20" Horizon when I stumbled across a YouTube video that mentioned a pit builder based out of Tulsa, OK. I live in Oklahoma so being able to pick up my pit from the manufacturer saves me hundreds of dollars on shipping costs. I immediately found the website and spoke with the owner, Craig Bell, who is super nice. I told him what I wanted and he put me on the waiting list (8-10 weeks). I'm getting a 24" x 48" with a 24" firebox, all 3/8" thick fully welded steel for $1200. That's a steal compared to any competitor (that only uses 1/4" steel mind you) who's rigs cost 3 to 4 times more for a comparable size. The pics I uploaded are just stock photos. I'm having mine built with a single cook chamber door with counterweight and wood rack below. Does anyone else here own a Bell Fab that can give some input? 8 weeks can't come soon enough and I'll update you guys with pics of the finished product. ​ ​

                  Sweetness!!

                  I'd opt for 1/4" or even 3/16" like a Jambo. Save some weight for my flacco self..

                    Enjoy the new cooker! Looking forward to seeing it when it arrives. Salutations from Hays, Kansas!

                      MCS, when the trigger finger gets itchy. Good on you. Happy for you.
                      Live long and BBQ.

                        Whoa! That’s a steel steal! I too got mine from a local fabricator, but I visited him in person before I pulled the trigger. Mine is the exact same dimensions (but paid a little more than you). Even still, I bet you and I could sell the smoker for what we paid (seems underpriced, but hey, good on us?).

                            All 3/8" steel? How are you going to move that thing?
