Thanks guys!
Yeah if the CC were bigger and the pellet drive unit was a firebox of the appropriate size it could be real cool.
The problem will be the wheels. Larger ones are out there and I would recommend doing a very basic drawing of the tank/FB/wheels first so you know what size wheels you're looking for when all you've got is a tape measure along. I did and it really helped. :D

what is the clearence between rack and ceiling, you think a couple of porkbutts will fit. i have two of the hundred lbers and thought would be great for family patio smoker, not real easy finding wheels like you have, might have to make something. :BD:

Clearance is about 7 inches. My tank is about 14-5/8 diameter (not perfectly round).
I think only the very largest PBs would be a tight fit.
20# Brisket would be no problem.
20# turkey might be tight ... I like 'em about 12 pounds anyway. :D

Rick that is awesome! I know you will tinker until the temp difference is non existent. :D
I know a guy that could transport it for ya, if it wont fit in the Smokin Geo Cache buggy. Of course there would be a small fee, maybe a pint an hour or so! B-)


BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.

i'm thinkin front mounted reciever hitch and mount a hoverround wheel chair carrier... she would fit right up there.

How cool would that look.

Of course on the smokin coach it would be much easier to see over it.

The hinges are still up against the cook chamber but I did install a 3 inch riser (raw steel in these pics) to increase the burn time out to about 6 hours on a load of pellets. Maybe that's what you're seeing. The seat comes up with the lid.

Tom I don't know if I can get enough air around this thing to keep the coach radiator working - let's try it on YOUR truck first! :D

Thanks' guys - it even surprised me ... :D

I added some slight openings on the left end of the BP so maybe the temp will be more even this time....
