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.

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.
