60 gallon propane tank Smoker with a 25 gallon propane tank firebox. Reverse flow hopefully

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I started out with just the 60 gal tank and made a vertical smoker.  BUT I ended up with poor tasting food, a lot of soot, and going through 30 pounds of propane for 2 smoking sessions of ribs.  So I decided to turn the 60 horizontal. and ad a 25 gallon as the firebox.  For the time being I think I will just make it a wood/charcoal  smoker for this summer.  I have used the calculators here and if they are correct, 30 inches of the 25 gallon cyl. will be plenty of firebox.  Not sure how this will turn out, but I am hopeful it will work.

If anyone has any ideas about this build feel free to comment.  I have not seen anyone use 2 propane tanks yet so I am a little leery of how it will turn out after all this work.

Thank you.

Thanks Dave.  I plan on using about 34 inches of the 25 gallon tank.  It has already been cut to make a door.  The size of the hole between the tanks I have not measured yet, I was thinking about opening up as much as is possible and putting a damper between the two. Getting the 2 tanks to matchup have been a pain to say the least, but we are almost there.

You don't need a damper between the CC and FB..... that can cause problems.....
