200 gallon propane tank. smoker build ??
 
My friend has a 200 gallon vertical propane tank. Does anyone know where I can find a build thread? I tried the search but got no matches. I got a call from him and he has one I can get for $ 25.00 and I want to get an idea of possibilities. Thanks

I would like to go offset. Maybe that will work. I need more capacity. Can it double as a stick burner and grill?

DownHomeQue 06-13-2013 03:39 PM

it could.. you will find though you will want to clean out the seasoning out your smoker before you throw coals in it.. when i need to grill i just slide over the tuning plates.. and i can get 300-600 degrees easily on the firebox side of the cooker without putting any coals into the main chamber..

Brother Phrasty has a few build threads here is one of them. http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=88599

I'd do a reverse flow if you decide to go offset. It looks a little short to do vertical unless u make the tank cooking area only and make a fire box for it to sit on

You can add a fire basket and charcoal pan in the warmer and have 2 cookers in one we do it all the time and it works great.

Whatever you decide... make certain to fully vent and purge that tank.
Things can go wrong real quick in a very bad way... with an unexpected spark and boom.

Thank You! I am looking to build a stationary unit in my cook area. That one is beautiful!
