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.

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.

thank you Ron I will take that invite. I will be going back home on tuesday and will be starting to weld on wednesday or thursday maybe we can get in contact so i can see your smoker. Thanks again.

bigron what size trailer is that for your smoker?

Big Ron 05-25-2009 09:32 PM

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.
