    I recently came into possession of 2 kegs, both of which have cracked valve necks. Anybody ever converted one into a smoker?

    Wow, I thought the aluminum would be thicker than that. Well at least all you have to do is wash them with some soap and water and don't have to bother with burning them out.

    I used one to make the smoke generator for my smoker. The aluminum isnt very thick but it is very strong!

  5. Homebrewers are going to have a fit when they see what you have done to those kegs.

    I believe that the kegs are 304 Stainless, not aluminum. Aluminum kegs are much thicker.

    Either sell them on EBay approx $45.00 each plus shipping, OR cut the tops out, and have a boiling pot/turkey fryer.

    Update on this, the kegs I got are stainless. Also, they were free just sitting in my neighbors junk pile. Gonna make mini-UDS's out of them and give them to my boys.
