It said in their website that they build their cooker smokers,out of decommissioned propane tanks as one way.I know that there are several ways they do it to keep costs down >Does anyone have a concern about this?Is the quality less then one that is not formally a propane tank.
All input will be read and considered .Thanks .

It is a great way to save money with no bad effects. What else do you need to know?

Happy smoken.

The pressure test on the propane tank is probably higher than structural pipe. Also, as far as any residual propane is concerned, every one of their smokers is sand blasted before painting. I would have no problems with a Shirley cooker.

Give paul Shirley a call im sure he would be glad to answer any of your question or concerns.


As far as im concerned there is absolutely nothing wrong with using a propane tank to save some money. Lots of folks have done it.

Have heard nothing but good things about their cookers.  I would venture to say that most tank smokers are built out of decommissioned or no longer usable propane tanks.  Mine was an out of service air tank.
