    I was just wondering how much fuel you use or how many cooks can you get from a tank?

    Tough to call. Too many varibles, smoker insulation, outside temps, cooking temps, amount of meat, etc. Keep a log on your smokes..always a good idea, for this and rubs, recipes, etc. I believe there is a log sheet on here for that... look in the box on the left of the main page.

    I usually get over 6 smokes on a tank. I also have a gauge on the tank that shows how much I have. There is always a spare tank handy, not good to run out in the middle.

    SPARE TANK!! I thought I got about 5 smokes per tank, but I always have a spare!

    What Richtee said. Too many variables, but everyone is right about a spare tank. I'm having problems saving this qucik reply... I went to advanced and I was able to save the reply from that screen.
