Hi guys. After reading all your threads, I finally pulled together to build a small smoker. Here are the pictures. I started off with an old water pressure tank. Attachment 24729 Attachment 24730Next I cut out the bottom half in order to build a fire area, but quickly learned that I would need to cut and reattach that half with the concave area facing up to create a more natural heating vent. This a little more challenging because the metal is very thin and kept collapsing with the arc welder. Next, I went to the hardware store to pick up a thermometer but could only find the oven type here, which I need opinions on if you have experienced this type.

Attachment 24740Attachment 24738 This is a very small smoker but I'm hoping it will provide lots of fun. Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated.
