    if you mean the sign in my pics, one of the techs that works for my company put that on a customers fryer. the fryer needed a thermocouple! there wasnt anything else wrong with it. he just didn't wanna work on it. so i took the "red tag" lol off of the fryer, fixed the problem, and needless to say he doesn't work for me anymore. i lost the account over that because the customer was down for too long, but some times ya gotta laugh about those kinda things. so i put that on our wall of shame.

    Well [​IMG] to you, if nothing else, just for liking my build enough to use some idea from it [​IMG]

    I was originally wanting a 125 gallon tank for the that build I did for my backyard but I'm pretty glad all I could find was the 80 gallon. Perfect size for the yard. Don't think I would have really wanted it any larger.

    Cant wait to see the upcoming pics of your build.

    sorry folks, i've been way too busy at work so i'm just now gettin back to this. i cut the tank open and discovered it was an old soap concentrate tank from a car wash. really old. it had alot of pitting on the inside and was gonna take along time to clean up. so i decided to order some steel already rolled for my masterpiece (LOL). i ordered a 30" x 48" x 3/16 for my cook chamber and am going to make a 20" tall by 24x24 fire box. if i figured the math right thats a 146 gallon tank (feel free to correct me if i'm wrong). i should have some pics to post soon. if anyone wants to mess with that tank i'm abandoning PM me and i will be more than happy to "hook a brotha up" lol! i can put it on a skid and ship or you can pick it up. hooked up person pays the shipping if shipped, tank for free!

    also i have already stripped all the powder coat off the outside, cut the door in it, and cut the hole for the fire box opening. there are some holes in the opposite side from the fire box opening that need to be patched and blended in. i also have the smoker calculator completed for the fire box and stack sizes.
