  1. This started out as a 120 gallon air compressor tank. Got this picture to post from my phone. Trying to figure out how to add more pics and text all at the same time.

    Nice smoker, bet that'll kick out some great Q !
     
  6. Thanks still have to get the racks cleaned up and season it. Made a double rack with the upper removable for larger items. Have to get more pics together of the build. Made it to be towable and did a removable tongue just hope it rides OK.

    That is a nice looking smoker you have built. You should be proud of it!
     

  8. Nice smoker man  [​IMG]   I've been keeping an eye out for a tank that size to make one... Welcome to SMF!
     
  9. Well I got it seasoned today. Found it needs just a couple small mods. Fenders on tires to keep firebox heat back and need to put plate in to redirect heat coming out of firebox. Heats baffle plate at that end more and makes temps about 25 degrees different end to end. Think adding a defector will help with that. If anyone has other option would be glad to hear it. going to try that for now. Boy it did heat up nice and hold it well. Had great smoke not heavy seemed just right. Use Hickory mini logs for the cure. Did make a charcoal basket for it as well, but wanted to use wood for the curing. Very happy with the way it worked out so far.
     
  10. Question I see the flapper on your stack do you keep it open while smoking ?

  12. Gary yes that is a flapper on the stack. Hard to see in the picture but there is a small link chain on it with a pin in the stack to control it. It's more for looks and to keep the weather out. I leave it wide open when in use.
     
  13. Nice. Looks like a perfect size patio cooker. What is the diameter of the cooking chamber?

    Aww, that looks sweet!
     
  15. The cook chamber is 65 inches long and 24 inches across. It has 2 racks with the upper one removable. I made it to fit my height, I'm 6'7" and got tired of low work areas with the others I've had or have seen. The racks are 54" by 24" and the upper is 54" by 16". Can't wait to get good use out of it. The way the curing went it should work just fine.

    Looking forward to seeing the results of the first cook! Be sure to post some pics here to make everybody drool!
     
  17. I sure will. Have to smoke something for the guys at my shop that have been seeing the build happen. Then the next will be a whole pig, might add in a couple of Briskets just because I have the room and that's more food for our party.
     
  18. That looks like a fine smoker. Great that you set it up to suit you.
