    WOW! I lucked into this find today, A friend of mine in the scrap business called me and said he had "something I may be interested in" and he wanted me to follow him to a scrap job he was doin. well when i got there he showed me these...


    the smallest one is 54"x24"approx 105.6 gallons and the biggest one is 64"x28" approx 167 gallons, they were water tanks off of concrete trucks. they have some mud kind of sludge in them but they are in great shape on the inside.

    looks like i got some work ahead of me! i think i will make a competition trailer out of the big one maybe. does anyone think that biggest tank is too small for that? the design of the build will be much like clinchmtnbbq's build, just smaller. with a warming cabinet over the firebox. also a friend of mine is working on a electronic temperature controlled intake damper for me so maybe i will incorporate the beta version of that into the build. maybe even make another one for the warmer cabinet damper. I can't wait to get the ball rollin on these things! [​IMG]
     
  2. Good find, what ever you make I'm sure it will be a fun adventure. The biggest one could work for a trailer rig, just depends on how big of a trailer you want!!

    What a find man. Tho you do realize that had you also scored a good size piece of 1/4" plate, you would have earned the official U suck award!


    If I had the room and the time I would like to take a large tank such as the one pictured and cut it in quarters. Insert a 3' x what ever length the tank is by 1/4" or 3/16 plate. Making a large square with nice rounded corners and flat ends.

    Then a rotisserie fed by propane over wood like the southern pride's.

    There is probably no practical purpose for the rounded corners other then looks.

    Not enough time right now tho. Seven years to go.

    Can't wait to see the outcome.

    I wish I could find a couple big tanks like those, I would attach one vertical to the other horizontal to make one of those offset hoizontal/vertical combo type smokers.
