Propane tank sizes

Discussion in 'Reverse Flow' started by ribwizzard, Oct 9, 2012.

  1. Looking to start new build, last one was a 120 gallon tank that allowed me 23"  wide grates. I would like to go with a little bit wider cooking grate.Closer to 30 inches as possible.

    Question is: Does anyone know what the next size horizontal propane tank is from a 120 gallon and what the diameter and length is?

    Trying to educate myself before I start call around for one, rather know exactly what size it is Im looking for.

    I have a 250 size tank on my Meadow Creek cooker. They have a good web that will list the size of the racks to give you a good idea of the size and width. Hop it helps !!  http://www.smokymtbarbecue.com
     
  4. Thanks guys,

    Looks like 250 gallon will give me 7'10" long and 30" wide.  I may cut the length down a little to give me what I want. But that will make a nice size party smoker.

    nybbq,

    I would love to see a pic of your meadow Creek, thats what I am planning to make a clone of.  Does yours have the doors that open from both sides?

  6. This is what Im wanting to build, except I want to include 3 propane rods so that it can be used as a grill as well for doing steak cookouts. I like the way they have the doors on both sides of the cook chamber, and overall its very compact design.  Not exactly what I would take to a competition or cater a big party, but a nice size to do a case of ribs on for a small party.

    Eventually, I'll have a fleet of these things, one for every kind of event.
