I live in the great state of NY, not the city! I have never smoked before but after working in TX and LA have come to admire the finer tastes of smoking. I am trying to get together the materials for a RF trailer mounted build but have found that propane companies around here do not sell old tanks. After reading Fourashleys build I am thinking about an old fuel oil tank. Cant wait to smoke my own meats, love to hear advice and suggestions!! Happy smoking!!!!!!
