NEW 250GAL PROPANE TANK BUILD IDEAS NEEDED

Let me start by saying Hello from Katy Texas.
I have been looking for ideas on this smoker. It is a 30" by 7' tank and the firebox is going to be 20" and I have 6' of it. I dont know if I should do a side by side or do an offset with that pipe. I can get 5" pipe for inlets for a sidebyside or just do and offset and reverse flow. I want to be able to put it in my garage so trailer size will be in mind.





this is an idea i got from our company smoker it also has a propane assist.

Ping Bill The Grill Guy, he has made many of these and his cookers are very well designed and built. He's also a nice guy that will always lend a hand with ideas!

I also have a Propane tank smoker on a trailer and I designed it to fit in my garage. Click on the pic for a slideshow from the first cook and now with addittions complete. Maybe it will give you some ideas. Also I live in Copperfield, just a few miles from Katy. You are more than welcome to come by and take a look if you want to.

I will have to go measure. A friend of the family did all the welding. This is his first smoker and he started with an axel and the tank. Everything is custom. I walked with him at a larger cook off with over 100 teams, I showed him what I liked and did not like and he cam up with the current design. I have added quite a bit from the first "finished" product and may add lights next. Any more questions I will be happy to answer.
