Got the base relocated and motor remounted. Just a few adjustments in the chain and rerouting the electrical and it’ll be ready for use. Not done but usable. ImageImage

And it done (minus cleanup and paint). Not going to lie. I didn’t do this originally because I thought making the mount for the motor was going to be a little out of my wheel house. But like most things on this smoker I got lucky and it turned out just fine. Got one of those Meater wireless meat thermometers for Christmas. Can’t wait to try it out in the rotisserie. Be nice to see what the temp is inside when my bbq guru is saying 225. HahaImageImageImageImage

Very interesting. Nice build.

Looks good!

Why thank you!

Got all the exiting walls demoed out of the interior of the smoker trailer and about to start on the floor. Came across an issue though. Wheel wells are rusted out and I think it’s worked its way into the frame rail. Not sure if I should cut the whole section out and weld in new or remove all the rusted out material, hit the remaining with the commercial rust converter I have and brace it up. Anyone have any thoughts on the matter? Going to have to get that taken care of before I can put in new wheel wells and flooring so I can place the smoker on the back. I’ll upload pics once the floor and wells are out.

I would cut it out and replace all of it if I had any concerns that a patch job wouldn't last long term. You building too nice of a project to cut any corners and I would hate for you to find out later that it wasn't strong enough to support everything.

That’s a good point. Only concern I have is sense it’s the frame I’ll want to use my buzz box and I’m not what you would call an accomplished arc welder. Haha. One of my buddies has a Miller 252 so I might pull it over there for the repair. I’d think I’d get good enough penetration with that.
