250 Gallon Grill/Smoker

Discussion in 'Side Fire Box' started by tngrillguy, Feb 7, 2011.

  1. I am new here and am sorry if this is in the wrong place.  Mod please move accordingly.

    A bit of background:  I live in Eastern Tennessee; they pump in the sunlight as I am so remote! [​IMG]   I am an avid DIYer.  I program Linux (hate Wind*ws), grow my own food and am not too keen on paying someone else to do that which I can do or can learn how.  That is how I have come to your forum.

    With all that said:   I have a 250 gallon tank (used to hold kerosene).  It has sat out for about two years now; 36" diameter x 62" length.  The pictures are attached.  This is my 'blank canvas' so to speak. 

    Now, I am not going to mount this on a trailer.  It will be placed on a permanent footer and block set up in the front of my barn-to-house conversion.

    I want a firebox/smoker attached like many I have seen to date on here.  I also want a double rack system in the grill with a third in a tiered system for warming/staging I guess.  I will add a sketch as I go on.

    So, I guess this thread is first about my tinkering around and displaying such and second, about getting all the good sage advice (no pun intended---or maybe there was?) from you great folks whom I have been lurking around and absorbing all I can!
