Pipe or 250 gallon propane tank and Estimated cost

Discussion in 'Smoker Builds' started by fisher6688, Jun 16, 2014.

  1. which would you prefer to do a build with? is there any benefits to either? i know the pipe could be as thick as 3/8 inch but is that necessary? and i know the propane tank is usually at least 1/4 inch thick. 

    Also are we talking at a couple thousands of dollars to build one on a trailer? any advice would be appreciated. I am also thinking of maybe doing a reverse flow. however i like the fact that i can put some chickens down near the firebox on a regular offset.

    if you are handy and have the equipment to weld and everything, bank on about 1800-2000 if you do the work yourself and have access to some "free or salvaged materials.., I have done a couple of them.
