Default homemade smoker

I'm going to get a 80 gallon air compressor tank, and gonna have a smoker made out of it...so any thoughts or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Is this a good choice for building a smoker. The guy I'm getting it from thought it was 2 ft. dia. by 4' or 5'.?

Sounds like a good size for a medium sized offset.

I would make into a small reverse flow. That would be a perfect unit for a deck.

This one runs like a champ. Steady as can be.
