    Guys, this list is a compilation of lists from other sites. I just cut and pasted the info. But enjoy, as it helps to be able to go to one place to get the info you're looking for.

    Noah, Nice compilation on the list. I'll move this down to the "General Discussion" thread for you since there not really a place to put this in the "Smoking Supplies & Equipment" forum, unless you want it in the "Other Resources" thread.

    Send me a PM as to where ya want it.

    Thanks Dutch,
    I just wanted it to be easy to come across. I wish I had a list like this when I was shopping for my Lang. I probably would have made the same decision, but having to round up the info my self was a real chore!

    i nominate that list to have a perminate home some where on this forum for all to see forever. i would hate to see such hard work get baried deep within the forum to never be seen again.

    and i second the motion.

    As noah stated, he got this from other sources across the net. This is excellent information and I want to personally thank Noah for posting it.

    We have a member that feels like credit should be given to the original site that posted this and I have no problem with this. I personally know that Noah will have no problem with this either.

    I did about 2 minutes of research and found the original post listed at thesmokering.com and barbecuenews.com by a user named zilla.

    This information was also found at various other forums as well and everywhere I found it, I found lots of cheers and thank you's to the poster for finding it and posting it.

    As you can see in this forum.. it is no different. Everyone loves and appreciates good information on all things pertaining to smoking meat[​IMG]

    Hey I'm glad to see the list is making the rounds. The first time I posted this list I posted it to 4 forums on the same day. It is now on most of the friendly forums and I try to update the list every 6 months or so and add new builders when I can. If you find a Custom Builder that is not on the list feel free to PM me so I can it to my data base. Enjoy folks! Thanks Noah!

    I need some help with some ideas for cleaning a fuel oil tank. I was thinking about just scrubbing it out several times with degreaser and dish soap. The once it is ready to go (cut and mounted) doing a big burn out on it to burn all of the reside out of the tank. The last think I want to do is make people sick.

    I know it can be cleaned I was just wondering if anybody has any tips for me.
