idea for smoker?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i want to make my own smoker
i am wondering if i could use this stainless steel tank to make a smoker


it has 20 inch diameter and is 4 feet long. i am only making a backyard smoker so i think this would be plenty big enough

what do yall think?

I think you could make a nice smoker outta that as long as you can cut and weld stainless

I really don't know what is involved in welding stainless but if you can get it done it would be a great material to make one out of it should last forever and look awesome

i talked to my dad(im only 17) and he said you can weld stainless with a normal mig setup you just have to get stainless wire.
the only problem i can see it that i am going to make an offset smoker and the pipe i have for the firebox is normal steel so is would rust. do yall think i should go ahead and use the stainless anyway? or should i paint the stainless? to match the painted firebox?
