    Building a reverse flow, miniature smoker/grill. This is either a 4 burger, 2 Fatty, 4 thigh, one big steak, or a 1 meatloaf Smoker/Grill, etc, etc.

    The fire box 1/4 inch steel and is 6" * 6" * 8" and the tank is 3/16" steel--6.75" by 18.5"L. This baby is smaller than small. I have about 4 hours labor so far, Hopefully, I will finish it tomorrow with the exception of paint. Just a fun thing right now, found the tank at the dump and I had scraps of steel hanging around. I hope it cooks--the firebox will take a small coffee can full of coals.

    Looking good,Steve. Keep us informed on your progress and how it works. Could be just the thing for a small camping trip for two couples. Would probably be quit the discussion piece while have a beverage and sitting by the campfire.

    Too cool! You need to find an old metal Red Flyer wagon and make it a "trailer" type Mini-Lange just to go along with the fun part.

    Keep the pics coming ... I love it!

    You trade that 84 for a sheetmetal roof? Always looking for a deal Smokinit.


    I am headed out to the garage, we'll see what I come up with---I like the trailer ideas, maybe get one of those kids electric jeeps to hall it around with?

    Pretty cool idea with the wagon and also just storing it inside the 60!!

    Keep Smok'n

    So far so good, I still have to figure out what to do for a stand, either the wheels I found in the garage, or a normal stand--its still light enough to lift by hand-- its so small.

    I also have to put a rain cap on the chimney, remove some paint and make a coal box/grate plus cooking rack--- it is pretty easy to operate, in testing, I got 375 then ramped it down to 225---here is todays Pics:)

    You COMPLETELY need to work up some sort of clown-car trick where you pull this thing out at a comp and start pulling smoked sausages out of it and they keep coming out and coming out and coming out. LoL! Awesome project btw, completely envious.

    Thanks for all the cool comments guys. Here is todays progress, I added a rain cap to the chimney, a slide out charcoal grate, a grill grate, and vent stops, plus wheels--------- still have to remove paint and add some more stuff!
