I do know the 7x11 interior size is going to limit me to what size meat will fit. I want to do ribs mostly.........but I need someone to say "NO! it wont work" before I scrap all hope of making this work. I have scrapped my original "h" shape for the horizontal double stack. My fire box is triple the size of what the calculators want but I know I can make that work....it's just the air flow I'm worried about now. I already have the entire trailer designed in my head. I have the charcoal trays and venting designed, I have the way I want to burn the fuel designed and the layout of all the work areas and things I want on the trailer. The only thing I have not designed in my head is the type of doors I want on the ends of the box tube for the fire box and cooking chamber. I need an axle, suspension, and a hitch to make the trailer and I have all the rest of the material I need to make the framework. The smoker will be sideways directly over the axle and tires.
I have put feelers out on a smoking forum to get anyone to poo poo the idea and so far it's been crickets from the members.
What im saying is it wont work well at all. Look at all of the work you have to do to build this. Is it worth it to get a mediocre smoker?
Even on my Bradly smoker. If i put the meat to close to another hunk of meat, the smoke taste is very much lacking.
