post #21 of 45
Thread Starter 
Well I just got the doors cut out of my tank, decided to go for a two door design....gonna through some wood in it and fire it up tonight to burn out whats in there. Its over at my one of my buddies, he just bought a brand new sand blaster and is gonna clean it up good for me. Just waiting on getting some steel so I can build me a box and some cooking racks, I'll get some pics on here and soon as my buddy gets them off his camera.

I finished up my propane converted smoker last night. I will be cleaning it up and painting it this week.

I removed the caps on it.

Flipped it over and let it sit for a few weeks.

Flushed it with water twice.

Let it air out for a week.

Here is the part I dont condone....try at your own risk:

Dropped a hand full of fireworks in it and ran like I was being chase by a lion.

The next day we started cutting into it. We were done with the first door before we realized we did not blow up.

Glad you posted that Goat. I was going to say the same thing. Filling the tank with water is the only way it should be done. The vapor can lay in the tank for a good while even after removing the valve from it.
