Hey all, new here. I am not new to cooking, but new to building a smoker for sure. I wanted to check with yall and see if this would be good to start out with. It is not the traditional propane style, but I know it can be used in a different way with trays and such.
Anyway, just wanted yalls opinion on this oil tank and trailer for sale for $300 as a place to start. I have not bought it yet, deciding if I should.
Steel oil tank is approximately 4' Wide x 2 1/2' Deep x 4' Tall. The trailer seems pretty heavy duty and I believe was once used for hauling heavy generators around for a light company or something like that.
I realize it is "depends on what you want" type of thing, however I have never built or owned one before, so I really have no preference at this point as long as it works good and will handle what I want to cook. It will be used more for family events, pool parties and the occasional small BBQ events. Dont plan on whole hogs, just ribs, chicken, butts, that kind of stuff. I would like a smoker with an offset firebox to burn wood.
