I am very new to smoking. I have been a chef for 17 years and I recently had a great experience with Smoking/ Roasting Pork Butts over night. I decided to buy a old trailer and an old used oil tank, so that I can build my own smoker. Mom always said, Go Big or Go Home! I've been reading quite a bit about not using an old used home heating oil tank. Now I'm freaked out!! I've cooked in some real sketchy places and have seen some really bad stuff, but poisoning guests is not my intention. I have read both sides of this situationa nd I guess I need to do what I feel most comfortable with. Thanks for Listening, I will post pics of the build as I go.
