Sorry for the delay in responses. That four letter word "work" keeps getting in the way.

Thanks for the props bro!

No problem, props go where props are due Brother. You inspire a lot of us with your builds. I like the raised vertical idea

In all seriousness though, I kinda think it would be a waste of a good tank to build a standard vertical. You can do that with a drum. With the thicker walls of a tank you can hold the heat in an offset. Now, you could mount it to your existing offset as a lower temp warmer/cooker or something.

What is the diameter?
I would be glad to make one for you if you didn't live so far away! I though about adding it to my offset, but if I did, it wouldn't be very portable anymore, (it is barely portable now)
Diameter is 14 inches. I do not think I would be able to get two racks in it, that is one of the reasons I was considering going vertical.

My son made a 80 gallon vertical, thick wall. It is like big UDS. Has 2 doors. 1 for food, 1 for fuel. The best thing is, the temps is so steady. Set it and forget it. He painted it black & orange.

Yours is even taller. You could have 3 or 4 racks in it or maybe a side firebox.
That is a pretty nice one. No, I meant 25 gallon. It is 43" tall and 14.5" in diameter. It is what they call a 100lb tank. I have a connection with a guy that gives me all the smaller tanks I could want. This is the biggest he has gave me so far, it has been mostly the 7.5 gallon "rv" style tanks.
