    I am purchasing a smoker from a church and have zero knowledge of building a smoker. So with that said where would you modify first? It is propane fueled so tossing in wood chunks is how they got the smoke. I obviously would want a firebox ASAP and use the propane to rig up as a log lighter. Here is my new to me large addition to the family.

    I will post better pics when I get it home. Thank you all

    I am guessing you plan on removing the grill from the frame and adding a firebox?

    What is the dimension of the tank?

    The frame will stay for now as a stabilizer, wanting the fire box on opposite side of where handle is. Smoke stack will be on side where handle is there is plans for a vertical cabinet on same side as stack.
