Somebody Buy This Ridiculous Cadillac DeVille Barbecue Smoker

It’s only $1,800, y’all

There’s smoking racks instead of seats

There’s no one more inventive than a Texas pitmaster, but one Garland barbecue enthusiast may have built the most unique smoker of all time using the body of a 1988 Cadillac DeVille.

Texas Monthly barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn unearthed the Craigslist listing for the glorious smoker, which has a capacity of 1,300 pounds. “This is a custom homemade BBQ trailer grill,” reads the listing. “Great for parties, weddings, or family unions [sic].” The smoker is also mounted to a trailer hitch, and the front seats have been replaced with racks perfect for holding ribs and brisket.

For barbecue obsessives who just can’t live without this totally customized Caddy smoker, it’s still totally for sale. Its owner is only asking an entirely reasonable $1,800 (or best offer, so maybe there’s some haggling room), but don’t be surprised if this gem doesn’t get snapped up in a hurry.
