Who doesn’t like smoked meat? Seriously, it’s the most amazing thing. Looking to take the world of BBQ to another level Nissan built the ultimate outdoor grilling rig, the “Smokin’ Titan.” The centerpiece of the 2018 Nissan Titan XD King Cab is a CM Trucks custom flatbed and a built-in Lang BBQ smoker. Three prep stations also grace the bed with a Partner Steel aluminum double burner stove, a Churrasco Brazillian Wood cutting board, and a Teton Steel 24x24 sink and water storage system. The sink and water storage can easily be swapped out for a Yeti cooler when cold storage is more important.
The custom trailer that is towed behind the Titan houses the Lang smoker. After installing the CM Trucks flatbed the Titan’s original bed was moved to a B&S trailer to allow space for the smoker and keep the intense cooking heat away from the pickups sensitive bits. Smoker pellets and wood chips are stored in two Titan Boxes and a Diamond Back SE tonneau cover protects the operation when not in use.
Wrapping up the build and giving the Titan a bit more attitude is a leveling kit, IF Signs custom wrap, 20-inch ICON Alloy Alpha wheels, and 275/25R20 Nitto Terra Grappler tires.

“I absolutely love this project vehicle – it is the perfect combination of truck, food smokin’ and family time,” said Billy Hayes, division vice president, LCV and Trucks, Nissan North America. “If I could take it home with me, I would.”
