Not ideal.. the key to an offset is for the Firebox to be LOWER! because hot air/Smoker naturally rises

I know someone that has one like that... has to use a fan to get the smoke to exhaust.. its not ideal as i say.. in other words just have a big tank.. use one end as the firebox.. the other end the exhaust.. its your tank do as you do.. i'm just speaking from my expierence.. but that would be more like a grill than a "Smoker" as in you would mostly use just charcoal and a little wood.. instead of burning sticks/Logs.. for fuel..

Take a pic or your tank.. consider mounting her on a car dolly or something of that hieght.. or i would consider.. mounting her on a walk up trailer... as in you step up onto the trailer.. to tend to your meat.. and you add fuel to your firebox while you are on the ground..

Yea i would try it with what you have.. and see what happens.. you can always change it later.. i would go ahead and try it before you paint it though..
