Default Just picked up a 60 gal air compressor tank.

Sweet! For 50 bucks. Great shape, first part of my build. I want to use my 55 gal barrel as the vertical side stack on the left and I still need a fire box. This will be my first time building a grill. Advice? New here so if this is in the wrong place sorry, direct me please.

I am looking to set it up to be able to close the vertical side stack chamber off when not in use and add a removable plate for for the optional reverse flow. I would also add another exhaust same side as the fire box to open only in the reverse flow mode.

Thanks for the info Lion and mjancel
