Looking really good. :kewl:

Are you going to build your own trailer or mount it to a "bought" one?

Way to go I guess. That way you build it to match the smoker's weight distribution. I'll look forward to that build as well.

It balanced out well with the axel just in front of the FB on Mack but it will depend on what else you want to put on the trailer. Mack is very stable and compact but holds a lot of food. If I make one I will raise it up a little, cause when I open the CC doors the smoke hits me right in my eyes. I could just wait before I stick my head in there. But I guess I don’t.

That is one of the nice things about a squared cooker they are all the same size.

Nice.
And thanks for putting up all the pics. I'm making notes all the way so when I eventually start mine, I'll have a "pictorial how to" to guide my way. :D
