Big Ron's 150 gallon Propane Tank Trailer Pit (Updated 8-15)

Here is the transformation of my 150 gallon propane trailer pit. I have recentley added a roof and removable sides using a design that allows me to still park in the garage.

That's a great-lookin' rig, Ron. Obviously a lot of thinking went into the design and construction.

Thanks, the design was all me, but the welding was done by a friend of the family. This is his first BBQ pit to ever build. He started with the tank and an axel, everything else was done from scratch. Next I am going to add lights.
