Hey every body. I have taken in a lot of great ideas from folks around this forum. I thank you all very much! I am in michigan and it is cold and snowy right now so i am going to start my build. I would love comments, pointers and new ideas.  I will be posting pictures along the way but give me time. This build will take about a month.

No I dont think im going to. I have two other smokers that i use for traveling. I think i will just use some pneumatic tires and make it a roller.

Well I dropped the tank off to the sand blaster today. There was to much surface rust on the inside to start fabrication. So hopefully I will have that back tomorrow and I will start laying out where every thing is going to go. Do you guys suggest using rope seal on the fb door and on the cc door? I think I will be able to pick up my steel for the fb tomorrow. Should i 1/4inch or 3/8?

Since the air tanks are so thin, I would stick with 1/4" and Double plate the top. That should be plenty good...

Trying to get a good location for where the FB meets the CC but it proving to be a pain. I might bring it to shop and use my torch instead of the cut off wheel.

I had tank sitting on a flat level surface. Then I used a piece of 8" wide plate blocked up to the height I needed marked and moved plate around cone making as I went. Hope this helps!
