Default 120 Gallon Tank Build (lots of pics)

Ok, here we go with another 120 gallon tank build. This one is a little different in that the tank is a 120 gallon vertical tank instead of a horizontal.

Got started by marking out where the firebox will connect to the cooking chamber. Then filled the tank with water before making any cuts. Once the tank was full of water I cut the top collar off. After that was out of the way, I cut out the firebox opening.

Then it was time to empty the tank and cut the bottom collar off. Next, I wrestled the big sucker into place and got it leveled and marked where the cooking chamber door will be. The door will be cutout along the inside edge of the blue painters tape. The bottom edge of the door will be 1" above the centerline of the tank.

From the opening for the firebox I was able to get some accurate measurements for the size of firebox I need to build. It will be 20" tall X 22" wide X 20 deep.

Tonight I will write out a materials list that I will need and hopefully get that order placed tonight so I can pick up those materials first thing next week.

Won't be able to work on it again until Saturday, but hope to get the door hinged and cutout that way I can do a burnout.
