Meadow Creek TS500 Tank Smoker Trailer



The TS500 Tank Smoker Trailer is a beast and a handsome one at that! It’s built out of a 500-gallon tank and boasts nearly 46 square feet of the cooking area—that’s enough space for 60 racks of ribs lying flat!

The spacious warming box will hold six full-size restaurant pans. Along with all of the other features standard on the TS series trailers, the TS500 BBQ smoker is ready to face the hungry crowds.

This trailer comes standard on a heavy-duty single axle chassis. It’s shown here with the optional double axle, trim package, stainless steel work shelves, mounted chicken cooker with stainless steel lid, and spare tire.

Custom options include adding any Meadow Creek cooker to the TS500 or incorporating the TS500 with any custom BBQ trailer.
