My Jeep Smoker!

My buddy built this for me since I fixed the hail damage on his car. He totally surprised me! It is built from a compressor, U-channel for stairwells, steel pipe and the rotors from a Porsche Cayenne. The engineering on this thing is insane! I am super privileged to have friends like this!

Thanks! He is actually an Olde English Bulldogge, but most people think he is a boxer at first.

Made steaks tonight for the first smoke. They turned out amazing! Had no trouble maintaining temp either. It works as well as it looks!

That things looks so cool. I have an electric smoker but I would love to have something like that. Does your friend have anything else that needs fixing?

Thanks for all the comments!
Here are a couple more pics showing how the fire box works. The hood bumps are used to latch the lid open. Then the bumper turns to unlock the front for cleaning. The fog lamps are the vents that can be opened and shut using the same key that holds the lid open.
