Smoke_Chef PM'd me this request: Hello Seboke, First, thanks for serving our country! I too went to Iraq but it was in 1991 when things were a little easier. Second, I love that upright propane smoker! I wonder if I could ask you for a favor. I want to build a smoker like that. At first I was just going to ask for more detail in this private message but after thinking about it. I decided to ask for a little bit more than that. I was wondering if you would take some pics of it. Inside and Out type stuff. Then talk about it's details. Pros and Cons. Likes and Dislikes. The little box to the right of it. The fire box. Ect.. Here's the extra mile part of my request. Then post all that as a thread in the appropriate section under smoking supplies and equipment. I don't know. Would it go under charcoal smokers, propane smokers, (probably not since it isn't propane fuel but after all, it's a giant propane tank?? Hmmmm) or wood smokers. I guess what ever your primary heat source is. I know this is a lot to ask. The reason I would really like to see it posted as a thread is that way maybe other builders like Smoking_Steve and Richtee would chime in with thoughts of building one from scratch. I'm not a super talented builder. My nephew and I would build it together and we both can do basic construction and welding but nothing like some people here can do. If it's to much to ask, I totally understand. As expensive as this project would be, I need to get it right the first time and I could use all the help I can get. Thanks, Franklin aka Smoke_Chef Feen farting around with a bunch of other stuff and spending WAY too much time in this here forum, but finally got the pics and details together. This is a custom job that I found for sale on Craig's List. A kid (17 maybe)in Seabring, FL made it in his brother's welding shop after envisioning it in a dream. Simple description is an upright propane bottle with an offset firebox, and a charcoal grill on the side made out of a section of metal pipe. All framing is made of 1" angle iron. Instead of cutting out the hole for the door and using the cutout AS the door, he crafted a nice box and installed a thick steel door hinged all the way down. That created a LOT of extra rack space if you can imagine where the racks would end if the tank stayed round. The firebox is a tad small, but I think he designed it exclusively for charcoal. I'd like it a little bigger to make it easier to fit sticks. I do get sticks in there, but have to wedge em in there. The tray you see below the rack is the original charcoal pan that fits in the rack. I didn't like how high he placed the rack - couldn't get small sticks in there or dump a charcoal bucket in it at that height. And it was too small and the charcoal would fall out. I still use it as a charcoal pan, but sitting on the floor of the firebox, sitting off the bottom by way of a wire rack.
