I'm getting ready to start my first smoker build its a 14 inch diameter propane tank 42 inches long I want my firebox to be 15 by 15 square  feldon's calculator says I need a half moon opening of 8.29 inches this seems big too me just want to make sure this is right before I cut 8.29 inches out of my tank I've inserted an image from another members build for an example some help on this would be great guys.

How did you make out with the cut size. I am having the same issue. Hard to cut the exact size semi circle when both tanks are different diameters

I gave up on trying to do the half moon thing the pit calculator said I could just use a round hole 4 1/2 inches so I made the hole and just cut my tank enough so it would cover the hole it was easier to cut a square hole instead of round so that's what I did here's what I have so far it looks like crap now but it should look better once I weld it up and paint it lol.
