500 Gal Propane Tank Pit Build

A 1000 gallon tank is roughly 16ft long, 4' high, 3.5' in diameter, and weighs about 1700+ pounds.

That is going to be a beast, Marty! Can't wait to see what ya do with it.


500 gal build in progress

Looking great..... Mine is still there just haven't figured it up on how to fill it with 1000 gallons of water without breaking the bank.

Very sharp! I would love to have a small trailer mounted rig.

Not implying yours is small, just meant I would like a smaller one. :wink:

BobBrisket 03-28-2011 04:38 PM

Water and soap are cheap compared to the fatal alternative

Fine lookin' smoker!

Oldskull 03-28-2011 07:40 PM

that's a work of art.

CockedandLocked 03-28-2011 08:18 PM

Thanks for the compliments guys. Just something an ol country boy on a budget threw together on a spur of the moment cause what I had wasnt big enough for a couple of local venues.

Ive seen some pretty sweet rigs on these forums that makes mine look like scrap iron

Still need to incorporate my Discadia and a Santa Maria style grill that will nest into the storage/wood box.

Thats a great looking trailer. Id love to have one just like it one day.
