Tailgating Smoker – Home Made And Great For Tailgating Parties

Tailgating Smoker

Home Made Tailgating Smoker

Tailgating pre-game parties are sometimes more fun than the game itself! Imagine having the ability to smoke a whole pig in your own tailgating smoker without having to bring in a complete smoking rig.

Ron Dill, one of our members, shared the following information about one of the homemade smokers he used to make. Here’s an explanation in Ron’s words.

I used to make these in my garage. It’s a collapsible smoker, designed for tailgaters.

Note the cotter pins on the corner. Disassembled, it would lay flat in the trunk. (I once carried 6 of them in the trunk of my wife’s Subaru.) Set up time was less than 2 minutes. I made them big enough to roast pigs weighing up to 60 lbs. Worked quite well!

What do you think? Could you build one of these smokers yourself?
