  • Frame Fabrication for Smoker

    My son in law purchased a close out smoker.
    The smoker is egg shaped, made of ceramic and weights 350 lbs.
    He got a deep discount because it was a discontinued model.
    The only problem is that the two level metal grill, which accommodates the stone on the bottom level, was no longer available.
    Our solution was to fabricate a frame, which can support a stone that was designed for another smoker.

    The first picture shows a SolidWorks view of the frame that I designed installed in the smoker.
    The second picture shows a SolidWorks view of the frame with the stone on top of it.
    Our plan is to mount the existing grill on top of the three feet of the stone.
    Picture 3 shows the entire frame weldment.
    Picture 4 is a close up of the welds that are near the center of the frame.
    Picture 5 is a close up of the welds for the feet of the frame.

      Here is a 3.41 minute video of a similar grill in operation:

      Below is a picture of the two level grill that was no longer available.
