Steve, a retired iron worker from northern Illinois, is taking backyard barbecuing to the next level, and custom built himself a large smoker over the course of three years. But, this isn't just your average piece of equipment – it's one that looks like an old-fashioned steam engine! Reddit user DrewCIL, Steve's son, originally posted about the video on the site, and people have understandably been very impressed with his dad's handiwork.
DrewCIL explains that almost all of the smoker was built from scratch. The fire box is reclaimed from an old farm house stove, and the wheel rims are cut up fence posts. Steve crafted the water tank and whistles. Once assembled, it really does look like an old-fashioned train, complete with the “steam” element. The Redditor also adds that the smoker makes some delicious ribs.
