Thinking about converting an old 275 gallon tank. Ive done some reading and searching and cant find a lot of info with my limited searching on making a self contained unit (fire box inside the tank not offset) and vertical. i was thinking about maybe putting a grate a few inches off the bottom a plate across just above 1/3 of the way up to make the fire area, then a few racks in the upper section, possibly the exhaust out the top but plumbed down inside to allow it to fill with smoke? Im new to this idea so this may be way off base and not be worth doing this way. These are just the start of the thought process.
Open to any suggestions on if a vertical build would be worth while and functional set up sort of the way ive described.
