I am Jared from Norman OK. I have been a floater on here for awhile and just recently joined. I have recently bought a 250 gal propane tank, some steel, trailer axle, and a welder. I havent ever welded a day in my life but have a love of building things with my hands. I look forward to learning and am excited to start my build. I was also given a smaller 100 gal propane tank and have decided I am going to do a rear facing firebox design to maximize the square inches of cooking space inside the tank. I have a one year old little boy and his birthday and mine are about a week apart and the next party is April 2014. I have a desire to build it by our next birthday party and have a pig roast.... We will see how it goes. I have very little down time (lucky to get a few hours a week) due to little man and my wife is still in school. I will be posting pictures in a new thread and will appreciate any ideas, thoughts, concerns...etc. I am eager to learn, build, and enjoy smoking meats as I am an avid hunter and mostly bring home deer and turkey as they are the most abundant where I am. Anyway long intro but just wanted to let yall see where I was at and what I had planned.
