Newbie with a mig.

Thread Starter 

Hey y'all.  Signed up a few weeks ago and have been browsing through the forums for reverse flow ideas.  I went shopping at the dump a few weeks ago and came across a 100gal. 16" dia. water pressure tank that some nice person left just for me.  My first thought, SMOKER.  The father-in-law recently picked up a lincoln mig welder and it needed to be broken in aswell.  So I started planning and with the great ideas I've found on this site, I am about 2-3 days away from firing it up for the first "seasoning burn".  I will hopefully get to post some pics in the next couple of days to credit all of you for your great ideas.  Thanks again to all you pitmasters out there.

Still need to do some clean-up grinding and paint it and then stoke her up to see how she works.
