Default New Smoker Build

Back in February I scored the air compressor tank off of CL for $75.

We finally found time to start the smoker project. Going to be a reverse flow with 2 cooking racks. The plan is to make it so I can load it onto my 5x8 trailer with a ramp to transport. The tank is 1/4", and is about 5.5 ft long, 24" diameter. At some point, probably this winter, we will insulate the firebox. Dave is the welder and he is a real wizzard with it. I'm the grinder and the cook.

firebox, 24"x24", 5/16" thick.

A couple pics of my buddy Dave welding the firebox onto the tank:

Attached a couple 10" tires to the rear, and a trailer jack to the front.

And the door finished.
