    Didn't build any but I know a guy who did and he let us borrow it last year for the 4th of July.. I think my dad has some pics somewhere.

    We spent all night basting a full pig and man if that wasn't some of the best BBQ I ever had. The Trailer had a huge tank of propane and there were metal racks that went under the rack that the pig was on, you could place wood chips and stuff like that on these smaller metal racks. It was trully a slick setup.

    I know a guy that built on he put it in his backyard along a brick wall.I thought not the smartest idea because of the black smoke that would get on the wall but hes had no problems. Its HUGE! Its big enough you could cook the whole cow on it. And he mounted his gas grill on the side so that he could use that for little jobs.plus everything he barbeques is great because he makes his own sauce but thats another thread.

    I'll get my ol'man on ck5 for once and he'll give you some good ideas. He used to build them. They were very very cool and they worked great!
