GF Smoker Info Weights & Height

Post by JLogo » January 3rd, 2017, 12:55 pm

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had approximate finished weighs & heights (as per plans from smokerplans.net) of the gravity fed smokers , trying to figure out which one to build.

I have to move it onto an enclosed trailer that has an interior clear height of 5'-5", but was also worried about the weight that the ramp can handle.

1. Gravity Fed Mini
2. Gravity Fed Single Pan
3. Gravity Fed Double Pan

thanks for your help
James

I did a spreadsheet of all the dimensions of the various materials for a mini figuring squares where irregular shapes were because I do things like that. Without wheels/hardware/stack, rod/wire, expanded steel grates, paint or insulation:

173 lbs mild sheet
62 lbs tubing
25 lbs angle
112 lbs various thickness steel plate

372 lbs. total. Probably easily pushing 400 lbs finished.

Thanks everyone for your responses helps allot.
I'm going to build the double pan and just put it on an open utility trailer instead of the enclosed trailer.
Most likely install a winch to help with loading and unloading when i need.
