Hi guys, been lurking around the website for a little bit here gathering as much info as possible but just wanted to gain some of your input as well as ask a few questions.
I have 2 - 240 gallon oil tanks mounted on a trailer. (as seen in the picture) Planning on doing a reverse flow offset smoker. The tanks measure 23" wide with a 3" gap in between so total 49" wide on the trailer. (This is just a rough install, the tanks are still to be braced together and the rear of the trailer to be stripped to allow for the firebox)
- What I'm wondering is would it be wise to make 1 firebox for both? (it will be attached to the rear of the trailer) And think about putting a removable baffle/divider in the middle of the fire box? Or would my best bet be to build a separate firebox for each tank?
- What size would you guys use roughly for a firebox for this set up?
- Also What thickness of plate metal would you guys recommend to use for the fire box? Would I need the same thickness metal to use as the baffle plate that goes across the bottom of the smoke tank?
Please feel free to critique this build so far and help me build it to its best potential as I've never built one of these before!
Thanks in Advance!!!!!!!
