You probably need Tapatalk, and the Photobucket app on your droid. Worked for my iPhone.

That is not a good candidate for a smoker, bro. I think the diameter is too small.

I agree, diameter looks a bit on the small side. I'd get that thing tested, filled, and hook it up to my kegerator :P

Wow, that's hard to see it in your pic. 20" in diameter X 4' long should be OK.

Edit: I opened up my CAD software and superimposed the pic on top of a 20" X 48" box and the height to width ratio is right on.

I thought of doing it just as an upright useing the uds as a guide, but with doors because its so tall. And now that I have two tanks I dont know if want to stick my first plan and just use the inner tank as a grill beside it.. Also I want to do as little welding as possible, none was my goal but the bottom had to come off to get the inner out. So now that the welder has to come out Im more open to ideas, pros and cons would help me alot. Im taking tons of pics and will post as soon as i can.

I agree it is too tall for a UDS. But I do see it rockin' as an offset.
