Default First time smoker build

I just finished building my first smoker. I got my hands on a nice 80 gal vertical air tank and decided to keep it simple. Everything is hand made except the propane burner I used from an old turkey fryer. Tomorrow will be its first use. Gonna smoke a tri tip, pork butt, wings, deer loin, jalapeno poppers and maybe a wild turkey breast. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

That is a lot of different stuff to try first time out. I would start slowly, just in case there is an issue so you don't end up wasting a bunch of food.

Probably true, but I'm thinking "go big or go home." I do have a smaller smoker I can fire up if things go south with this one.

and as far as smoking all that stuff at once.. wow.. it all takes diff times temps ect. and id think opening the smoker a bunch of times checking things from time to time you are asking for trouble

I'm sure you are right. I'll probably use my smaller smoker to cook a couple things on to make it a little easier.

Wow! That smokers looks amazing! I've got to keep my eye out for a tank like that. I would agree with a couple of the other guys on here. You might be trying too much stuff! Pick a couple of your favs for the smoker and then cook the others on the grill. Or maybe make some killer sides to go with your killer meats! We're going to need some pics of the final products!
