Thanks to the forum, can't wait to glean all the knowledge I can from all these "old timers". New to the smoking side of meats. Live near central Ohio. Am looking to build my own smoker here in the near future. I am using a small Brinkman to get my toes wet. I have idea's for using some old propane tanks I have 100# and some 20#. I am also looking at on old S.S. tank that I got from work that is about 12 foot diameter and about 5 foot tall, standing on about 4 foot legs. Can weld and cut, have access to plasma cutter when needed.Am going to see where this goes as I build. Thanks to all whom take the time to show and guide those of us getting the smokebug!
