Hey all,

I have decided to join up :) I have been reading for months now but just figured I join this great community!

5 years ago I was lucky enough to get bitten by the BBQ. I have used propane smokers mostly, but I'm now looking to grow a bit and thinking about building my own ( I do know its very time consuming, need a side project though). I've been looking for a place to get used tanks but Craig's list and eBay have been a bust.

After a few weeks of looking I stumble upon these guys... http://www.blttanks.com/salvage-tanks

prices seem beyond reasonable but was just wondering if anyone has dealt with them before?

It would be a road trip lol, but it might be worth it!

I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you!

Local Alter scrap yard, here in Quincy, used to get scrap tanks from local tank mfr. Don't know if they still do but might be worth a call. Depending where u r in IA might be less of a road trip, if the still do.
