New trailer rig (lots of pic's)
« on: April 03, 2011, 11:08:42 am »
Teamates Shorty son Taylor & I decided to make a go at a big stick burner trailer rig for future shindigs we have been cooking for...  Had a free boat trailer to start with and picked up 250 gallon tank for $150.00 from a client of mine and 24" gasline pipe freebie from another client (with promise of lunch BBQ later).  That started the ball rolling.......so here goes....

Trailer demo phase:


New beams:


First door cut:


Getting firebox shaped up: (friend Dave retired welder helping us out)


Cutting out the firebox opening:


My awesome grinding technique!:


Firebox attached:

More shots...........

Installing reverse flow removable panels:


Front propane tank mounted for pot burners and fire starter, ran a 1/2" gas line the lenght of trailer, three bay sink being fitted:


Bending door strap sealers in place:


THE DOOR FROM HELL!! 1/2" plate steel leftove piece that weighs 67 pounds now in place and latch installed:


Checked in with our county health department about vending permits and discovered that the sink might have to be moved into our box trailer which SUCKS since we welded a friggin' 4" beam to hold it and have water tank and pump ready to install !!

Looking good! You might also want to check with your health department as to the sink requirements being NSF. The sink you have is not NSF and most counties do not allow their use for dish washing. These non-NSF sinks have square corners and are primarily used as utility sinks, laundry sinks or Slop sinks. Better to find out now rather than after finishing.

Yeah we were wondering about that, bottom of sink only has two rounded sides but he other two are square cut.
