Hello, I am just getting started with smoking, I have a friend that does a lot of smoking and I love that rich smokey flaver. I stumbled on to this site looking for some ideas on building a smoker. I am not sure about the size however, I tend to go way over board whith my plans, been thinking about using some old water tanks that are laying around about 100 gallons. does this seem to big to you guys.

thanks for the input.

................Welcome mr sweets, You will find a wealth of information and help on this site. As to the 100 gal tanks, it seems to me they would make too large of a cooking area. But thats just me...others here might say "just right ". Visit here often you will get some input for sure...

Welcome to the SMF Mr. Sweets. A 100 gallon tank is BIG for a smoker, unless you are going to do a lot of meat at once quite frequently.
