New build questions?

  1. I have access to .140 thick pipe, which is about 10 gauge I believe, super cheap. I'm looking at build a 20" x 40" cooking chamber patio unit. My question is this thin of metal even possible to use to build a decent smoker. I'm in Texas so I'm not dealing with cold Temps very often. I've read that 1/4 is minimum but this will be a upgrade over my walmart special offset that leaks like crazy and is made with 18 gauge.

    There is no such thing as minimum CC thickness.

    You can make a fine smoker out of 10 ga.
  3. Great. Was just wondering if it would hold up. I've had my walmart one for a few years. I guess the new one will last much longer. I'm also gonna take much better care of it, it already has a spot to park in my garage.
