Located this forum and glad to be here. My name is Micheal.
Ready to build my first big smoker. Have a 140 inch long 30.35" i.d. propane tank. The dimensions aren't counting the round end caps which are another 10" each. I've built a couple of small patio units but nothing this big. Thanks for reading, and I'll start a build thread with pics soon!

Welcome from SC, Michael. It's really good to have you on this great site. That will be one more monster cooker. I can't wait to see some pics.

Good luck, Joe

This is the tank. 1 cup of dawn, half gallon of bleach, and it will sit over night. Tomorrow I'll drain, check with combustible gas meter, and start cutting.

Gonna cut tank at 92 inches, stand up the piece I cut off and saddle it back into tank. That'll give me a CC about 77" long, a round firebox and warming chamber about 6 ft tall x 31" diameter with 1/4 plate in between the fb and warmer. Numbers not exact but close. I'm building this to smoke for events and a little catering.
