Default Building my first smoker.

Have had my eye out for a while but just picked up 3 odd sized propane tanks. The two in the truck are 20" in dia. And 3' and 3'6" long respectively. The one I think I'll use "first anyway" is a stubby little guy. Measuring about 24" dia. And approx 32" long. Prob do some searching before I make the first cut. If there is an obvious reason to use the narrower longer one please chime in. Considering making it look like a pig since its stubby, or maybe just incorporate side tables. Input is appreciated, and I'll document progress.
I think today I'll just stand back and drink about it. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1363641579.674874.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1363641595.675078.jpg

Will be fun to see your build but be very sure you know what you are doing before you cut into any propane tank. Have a professional cut it for you if you have any doubt.
