Cool 120 Gal Tank build thread...

Alright everyone... To start off here's the deal. I've been catering for a couple years and I have decided to take it more seriously than just a part time thing. So I am adding a 120 gal offset smoker trailer to my team of self-made grills and smokers. The idea is to make food management easier and to create the ability to take on bigger jobs. This thread will hopefully serve as a record for the build as well as a way to improve the overall design by getting feedback from my Brethren. I've never done a build this big and to make things worse I'm on a pretty short timeline. I would like to at least get the smoker itself done by latest the end of August and I can build the trailer later. We'll see how it turns out... So I guess here we go.

The illustration is the basic design of the smoker, however... this will be subject to change as we go along.

I started today by removing the small factory legs so that I could flip the tank & remount them and have the opening for the valves which were on the top go underneath. I also measured and marked the doors for cutting tomorrow. Thats kinda it for now... Will keep posting as the project progresses.

Please feel free to give feedback, concerns & suggestions. I am very much open to them and I am hoping it will all lead to a better build in the end.
