Hello all, my name is Jerry Happe and I am from Evansville, IN. I am 54 yrs. old and work in Production. I am new to this smoker building but am anxious to give it a whirl. My experience in cutting and welding is very minimal. I do have the guidance of my Dad and neighbor, both with welding experience. I have obtained a 275 gal. fuel oil tank which I want to convert to a reverse flow smoker.
