the transformation to nissan’s ‘smokin’ TITAN’ began with the addition of a custom aluminum flatbed – allowing space for three food prep stations each featuring a partner steel aluminum double burner prep stove alongside a churrasco brazilian wood cutting board. a teton steel custom on-board 24×24 sink and water storage system is accessible with an easy step up from the flatbed. the self-contained sink and water system also can be interchanged with a yeti cooler when cold storage is more the priority. utilizing titan’s flat load floor in the second row of the king cab, an arb 50-qt. fridge freezer and slide was added to the backseat along with a custom built spice rack.

the heart of ‘smokin’ TITAN’ lies inside the custom trailer behind the truck. since food smoking can create heat up to 600 degrees, the pick up’s factory bed was removed from the truck and put on a B&S custom trailer to prevent that heat from affecting the truck. the bed-trailer features two ‘TITAN’ boxes as lockable dry storage for the smoker pellets and wood chips flanking the smoker. utilizing an innovative utili-track system, a custom sliding tray was designed to easily slide the smoker in and out of the bed, supporting the custom lang BBQ smoker and char grill. when the smoker is not in use, the whole trailer is secured with a steel diamondback se tonneau cover, allowing the user to smoke meat at a tailgate and pack it up for the trip home.

  • Actually Daniel’s idea is something we used to do as snowmakers. Fuel-powered snowguns we used had mufflers on which we would place cans of soup and other durable containers of food we wanted hot. We used the exhaust to dry and warm our gloves in -30F weather. Using the otherwise-wasted decay heat from an engine to power cooking equipment is both doable and worthwhile. When will someone start designing equipment to do just that?

  • Why not using the exhaust pipe for Smoking?
