500 gallon propane tank

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 


What could this tank be used for?? 🤔
post #2 of 10

A submarine.

A roadblock.

To change the front tires on a crane.

 

Or even a big smoker.. But it's gonna take a lot more steel, a huge trailer, and a cord of wood to make it work. Not impossible by any means though...

For a person with pit 4 brains you sure are negative.

I guess this tank will not work to good for a submarine because there is water leaking out of it.

🤔🤔 Do I make it RF or Franklin Style??🤔🤔
post #6 of 10

Franklin-all the way, but that's just me.

 

I think more guys cook on the RF's nowdays but I've always been used to the temperature gradient you get with a traditional stickburner-no tuning plates needed, only a baffle of some kind. Aaron has mentioned in his book that he's actually jammed an old license plate into the firebox/cook chamber opening before to suffice.

Would 1/2 of a 250 gallon tank work for a firebox?
post #9 of 10

Franklin uses 250 tanks for a firebox for his 1000 gallons cookers

Water is better than gasoline or diesel!

I have a smoke that started from that.  I didnt build it, but i've cooked many a brisket and other tasty delights on it. Mine does not have a separate fire box.  The fire is in one of the spherical ends and it is completely open to the cooking area.
