    So I am on vacation this week...gettin some honey-do list done... and I decided to take a break from that to go walleye fishin with a buddy at a local river.The run is starting a little early this year so there isnt alot of fish up the river yet. I came home with 1 nice male. I filleted it up an soaked it in italian dressing to throw it on the charcoal UDS grill. It was yummy. Sorry I didnt get any pics of the finished fillets but the family was hungry!

    Anyways.... on to the real good news.  Since I was in town I decided to stop at the salvage yard to see if they had any tanks....

    Here is what followed me home....

    I think it is  a 120 gal tank. I'm not sure. It is 4 feet long from cap to cap but I havent measured the diameter yet. This is Just what I was lookin for to make my backyard Charcoal grill!  I've got so many ideas rattling around in my head right now[​IMG]... but I have to wait on this till I get my gatorade smoker done first.AAAARRRRGGHH!!![​IMG]    I need to take more vacations so I can get all these ideas done! [​IMG]

    Wish me luck!

    OK, I'm ready to go fishing now!  It may be another month or so, but I'm going.[​IMG]   Looking forward to your new smoker/cooker.  It should be a dandy.

    Nice Walleye you old SOB!

    Nice tank too---Probably make a much better smoker than the air compressor it once was.

    We had one similar at the first cabinet shop I worked at.

    It had Babbet bearings, and we used to have to whack it with a hammer, when it started humming, instead of kicking on.

    Sparks would shoot 8 feet, as it started. Boy was I glad when he got a new one!

    No more time for fishing---gotta finish that Gatorade smoker!
