Gas Cylinder RF Smoker

Post by secondhandsmoke » February 3rd, 2018, 2:10 am

Hi Guys,

Greetings for Brisbane, Australia

Here's my little backyard RF smoker. I needed something a little smaller than my 24' trailer pit.

The tank started life as a vehicle gas cylinder (LPG tank in Australia).

Started off with the frame

Then got the firebox panels laser cut and welded up.

Almost finished

Burn in

First cook - Lamb Shoulder

Waiting for said lamb shoulder to cook.

Welcome. Nice build. Looks like a neat little unit. :kewl:

I used some ideas from the forum for my first build which is a 24 inch trailer mounted pit, but I pretty much just winged it this time. I used the same numbers as the trailer pit, just scaled down.

Secondhandsmoke, where around Brissie did you get your thin expanded metal from? I only seem to find the thicker stuff.

I bought it from Onesteel, but I’m pretty sure they order it in from Webforge. I bought a whole sheet when I built the trailer
