UPDATED 7/17/13 IN REPLY BELOW...
Hey guys! Been patiently waiting for my build to start, but I've been at the mercy of the school's welding department schedule. My project finally came up! (I teach at a local technical college, and the welding class takes on various projects. All I have to do is pay for actual materials.)
Platform: 120 gallon upright propane tank (tank was free)
Building an upright smoker for this project...heat source: propane.
First cuts...Day One:
Here's the propane burner from Bayou Classics that will be the source of heat...dang, it's a big 'un...
UPDATE: We replaced this burner...found out from research, it was rated for 210,000 BTU's. OK for a jet engine, but not a smoker. Replaced with one rated about 40,000 BTU's. Were able to get temps down in the 170s and up to the 350s during test burns.
OK...this was the Day One post...I will continue to update as long as you guys are interested...I have no idea how long it will take...
Thanks for looking and sharing this with me!!!
