New Fueler "Smoker" in 1st CAV....
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: New Fueler "Smoker" in 1st CAV....

Hello to all, it's been a while since I've been on here since my trip to Ft Eustis for ANCOC and my return back to Ft Hood. I found this interesting HEMMET fueler at the 1st CAV museum today while snapping some M47 pictures for Toadman which I will be posting on here as well soon. This grill / smoker is awesome! Notice the Toyota next to it for size comparrison. Someone went to alot of work to make this. With all 8 tires pointing straight, it looks to be a pain to manuver however. Enjoy you 1st CAV fans.

Maybe it can "pivot steer"? (that ought to be good for some smoke!) Laughing

We never had a smoker shaped like a fueler, but we had a beer cooler shaped like a jeep trailer. Smile

Someone did a GREAT job! I'm sure those Cav boys use JP-8 for charcoal starter Wink

It certainly did take someone alot of time to make, no doubt. The actual grill/smoker area looks to be 3/8inch thick, and is not aluminum like the cab area. Those axles and brake drums look heavy as well.
Whats the time period and location of that beer cooler jeep trailer?

Jeff, The tires look like CUCV tires so I'm thinking they came with axles from a bone yard. Uniforms above look like the permanent press fatigues. I was wearing them in 78'-'79. Didn't have a maroon beret though Sad

Hey SFC Button,

The beer cooler picture was taken at 18 FA Brigade, Fort Bragg. Around 1980.

We were trying to uphold a proud tradition of hard drinking paratroopers.
