What say you great z-man? I can get it for half the cost of the pig roaster and it comes with a FLAMETHROWER! The main grill uses charcoal instead of propane, don't know your feelings on that, but it has a smaller grill for propane, a smoker unit that you can use as a grill if you'd prefer, it also has gas burners for deep frying or boiling kegs of corn on the cob and it comes with a couple height adjustable tables as well as a fire-extinguisher! I don't know about you but I'm a little smitten by it... ;)

Oh, and I'll resize the obnoxiously huge images when I get home from work (or remove them if z-man hates it)...

Lol funny you should post this, my dad and I have been fussing with putting something like this together during the winter. Char coal isn't an issue, but I don't have much practice with a smoker. It isn't so much how to do it, but it can be trickier maintaining a constant temp. If we aren't going to be ready I'll let you know, but I don't see why we can't use it.

[edit]I was thinking this without the roaster part. I simply don't do whole pigs. I could always rent one if I really wanted to. I just need some decent portable grilling space.

BTW - any links to this or more pics? I am looking for ideas and I generally like what he has done here.

That think looks clunky, hard to lug around, and slightly dangerous!

I totally want one! :wink:

I was looking into building a smoker...then came the realization that I had no place to store it or use it...then I was onto the next ludicrous idea, speaking of ludicrous, I saw Gleek at renfest a couple weeks back.

Online and offline are 2 entirely different people. It's almost a talk show topic, how different they are.

There is nothing odd about bringing porn and a walker to a BBQ, nothing at all.

I am not going to claim expertise in geography but, Michigan is not exactly counted as the Eastern Seaboard?

No, but FF is on the eastern seaboard I think. Only such a person would consider Michigan a Western state :lol:

And hey, I'm a broke Texan, Michigan is a long drive or flight :p Although I do wanna go up, just to see the great lakes.

I was just sitting down to post something about the bbq, and here it is. If there's anything you need lemme know. Also, damn you fish!!! that tv you sold me years ago for less than a 1/10 of it's original price has lost it's HD inputs I demand a free replacement! Though, on the bright side, even if I buy a 50"+ tv it'll likely still be lighter than that CRT.
