Offset smoker build


Joined Feb 7, 2020
Hey so im wanting to build an offset smoker from my old propane tank and was wondering if anyone knew a cheaper way to get a chimney(smoke stack). Needs to be around 4 feet tall with a 6" diameter but all the ones I find are insanely expensive.

If you have a heavy equipment place close I would stop in, they will get cylinders that cant be rebuilt and will be scraped , I used a 4" 1 on a reverse flow I built as a young man 30 or so years ago, didn't know that's what it was called then as no computer or knew anybody that smoked food. good luck and have fun

Is there a local metal recycling yard near you? They usually have all kinds of stuff laying around for cheap

When I made my smoker I used a short section of pipe and then slide a piece of stove pipe inside it. This also allowed me to use a stove pipe damper in the stove pipe. You can get stove pipe in different diameters at tractor supply and it is not expensive.
