So when I say that I want to build a smoker, some may think something the size of a large 3 burner grill, or maybe the size of one of those coverted 55 gallon things you see at a pig roast. Oh no! When I do something It has to be over the top.
After talking to Scott, we decided to go with a 500 gallon LP tank! about ten times bigger than the 55 gallon drum smokers. That's right, a whopping 120" long and 38" diameter.
I found a place to buy a used one, with some help from two of my friends. I was told when it was ready and that they would load it on for us, but I was responsible for unloading it. Which prompted me to ask, "How heavy is this thing. I need to know weather I needed 5 smart stong guys to help, or if I needed maybe one dumb guy". She told me that it weighs in around 900 pounds. I don't know anyone that dumb!
So Scott and I went over to pick it up and loaded it into his shop
