Welcome from SC, Rudy. It's good to have you on this great site. There are some really fine folks here who are always eager to share their ideas, recipes and tips. All you have to do is ask and keep reading. I'm sorry but I'm not a builder, but the link above should head you in the right direction. Other folks should be around that can help you a lot.

Good luck with your build and good smokin', Joe. grilling_smilie.gif

Hey guys I have a question from the tutorial Dave sent to get the calculation for the volume of my tank do I get the length of the cylinder and not the ends? Bc it's 65" from side to side or am I suppose to get the length from the weld seams? Thanks everyone

Measure the length from between the weld seam and the round end... Somewhere in there is close enough....
