I got it with intentions of making a warming box on top of the fire box to go on the tank below when I make my experimental smoker..... the tank is 36" diameter by 61" long.

Thinking on the lines of a reverse flow horizontal. Firebox in the line of 24x24x24 or there abouts. Then mount the vertical on top of the firebox just for a warming box, with an adjustable vent to let the heat in.... I will make a solid plate to fill in the bottom of the vertical smoker where the vent will go into it and add a baffle plate to disperse the heat.

I am still in the mind over matter mode. In the mind, cause I don't have it in any real drawings yet to matter.... And yes, trailer is in the design....

My older brother drives semi, and the last time I saw him, I asked him if they had any left over exhaust pipes from a repair or wrecked truck I could acquire for a vent pipe.... he scores.... about a 8ft piece of stainless exhaust pipe complete with 45 degree bend at top..... :biggrin:

If this thing really works, I have access to a 500 gallon propane tank to make the real one out of. This is just an experimental design... When I am serious for the next one, this one will be for sale. (maybe) :biggrin:
