    There's a reverse flow 350 gal tank trailer smoker on Craigslist in Phoenix for a little less than $3000. It looks like one heckuva unit. If I had the money to spare, I'd be emailing the owner, not you guys.

    yeah I seen the same thing in my area also and no way that things under 3k and its not brand new.... I was curiois as well and sent an email ... this is what I got back which wasnt even an answer to my question ... notice how the guy mentions how its a legitimate sale


    This trailer , looks excellent. This trailer has been extremely well maintained with a full service history.
    You will not have any problems with registration since it's still registered in GA. I am the second owner of this trailer , I bought it when i was serving in Fort McPherson, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title free of encumbrances and liens.
    I have dropped my price to $2890(purchase price) This way, both parties will avoid wasting the other person's time with negotiations. I want to take the opportunity to assure you that this deal is 100% legitimate. Which means that you will have a 15 days inspection period before buying the vehicle. The financial part of this deal will be managed by the eBay's buyer protection program.
    If you want to complete the purchase please send me your : Full Name and Shipping Address and I will notify eBay that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.
    This is an urgent sale and it will be my top priority since I need to sell it before July 03th. when i will be deployed in Iraq with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home by the beginning of the year.
    Please email me ASAP if you want to move forward and let me know if you need anything else.

    This trailer is very well weighted for traveling.

    Reverse smoker design uses three plates to transfer smoke and heat.
    10-ft, 350-gallon tank, 1/4 inch thick steel, 30 inches in height.
    The three doors have 1-inch x 3/16-inch flat stock around the edges to seal up the pit; no counterweights are needed because they were cut 8" down from top, dead center, which also cuts down on the weight.
    When a door is opened, heat remains in the pit.
    Pit will hold a steady temperature all day long.
    Grease drain
    The cleavers on the top of the pit function as doorstops; they are a unique and sturdy feature. Axe handles are an alternate option.

    The pit has six fully removable racks for easy cleaning; bottom racks are roughly 30" x 29"; top racks are 30" x 26".

    A flame deflector inside the tank stops flames from getting into the pit, allowing only that good old hickory smoke and heat inside.
