Started getting into welding and fabricating in the last couple of years and have always wanted to build a smoker. Just basicly waiting for the parts to fall in my lap.. Had an old trailer laying around and got a deal on a horizontal fuel oil tank. Plan is for an offset design using the tank cut into two pieces, smoke chamber and firebox.
only thought to start taking pictures after i cut the tank into 2 pcs. and also said "old trailer"
Decided on an offset design and picked up a 4x8 of 1/4" from a used metal supplier locally. 1/4" steel will be the wall between the two chambers.
Picked up some home depot steel from the metal supplier complete with price tags! fit in perfectly to the "c" channel of the trailer to sure up the attachment points. Also plan on fully welding the bolt together trailer.
the wall of the two chambers tacked to the tank and the door cut.
For the rest of the build i'll document things a little better. Thanks for all the help i've gotten from looking at other builds. I welcome any feedback and suggestions.
