Custom Offset Ideas

Post by Ultimo » Sun Jan 08, 2017 8:33 pm

My smoking buddy and I want to make a pair of 20inch standard flow offsets for ourselves.
We have a pair of bought 16inch offsets at the moment.
1 is a standard flow and the other is a reverse flow.

Lucky for us the builds will be done in my buddies stainless fabrication workshop so there may be some stainless bling on them as well.

So my question is if you have built or bought your own offset, what feature do you wish you had added in with hindsight.

Also any ideas on something to stand out from the crowd, like custom wheels, air intakes, handles, exhaust stacks and caps and any other cool touches.

We want to make them right the first time so all ideas are welcome.

G'day Ultimo,
I don't have an offset smoker as I don't have the skills or patience to use one :oops:, so I can't offer any advice in relation to their construction. In relation to making them stand out from the crowd, I suppose the skies the limit. If you have access to a metal fab shop, you'll have pretty much everything you need.
Good luck with it and some pics would be cool too.
All the best,

I know nothing much about fabrication however just keep in mind how to vent it, where to place exhaust stack and counter weight the doors of the cooker so they'll stay open when tending the food.

Never having used one before, its about all i can add.
