The average person will either move a smoker by shoving it from one side of the patio to the other or by having the movers place it in the back of a truck. You are not the average person, though. You want to take your BBQ show on the road! You need a BBQ smoker trailer.
Let us get one thing out the way right from the beginning. The average weekend pitmaster does not have a need for a BBQ smoker trailer. These trailers are not for the kind of person who occasionally enjoys whipping up a short end of ribs.
A smoker trailer is usually reserved for those with a commercial interest in BBQing or those who frequently participate in the growing world of competitive BBQ. Those who do not have a serious need to make their BBQing portable will not make the sizeable investment often required to purchase or build a BBQ smoker trailer.
Now that we have established the kind of person who might be interested in a barbecue smoker trailer, let us discuss the two different types of trailers.
There are trailers that are built to move a smoker. These are often homemade tools, custom-built to fit an existing smoker unit. You will sometimes see these used by competitive BBQ teams who need a way to move their big ol’ pit from one spot to another easily.
Some of these BBQ smoker trailer units are simple, streamlined exercises in mobility efficiency. Others are rambling, unique creations that nearly defy description.
The other kind of barbecue smoker trailer actually integrates the smoker with the trailer into one piece. You will see these on the competitive circuit too, but they are also extremely popular with those who sell BBQ from a variety of locations. These trailers allow their owners to smoke up their all-American delicacies from anywhere.
One can sell BBQ from a street fair in the afternoon and from a shopping center parking lot in the evening. The next day, it may find its way in front of a grocery store thirty miles away. An integrated BBQ smoke trailer is a must for those who want the ability to sell their meat from anywhere at any time.
Do not worry about a trailer if you are BBQ activity is limited to the patio. However, if you feel a strong need to serve brisket in Austin one day, ribs in Kansas City on another and pulled pork in Charleston a few days later, you are going to need a BBQ smoker trailer. These tools are not for novices, but many professional pitmasters cannot imagine life without them.
