  1. Hey y'all.  Signed up a few weeks ago and have been browsing through the forums for reverse flow ideas.  I went shopping at the dump a few weeks ago and came across a 100gal. 16" dia. water pressure tank that some nice person left just for me.  My first thought, SMOKER.  The father-in-law recently picked up a lincoln mig welder and it needed to be broken in aswell.  So I started planning and with the great ideas I've found on this site, I am about 2-3 days away from firing it up for the first "seasoning burn".  I will hopefully get to post some pics in the next couple of days to credit all of you for your great ideas.  Thanks again to all you pitmasters out there.

    Still need to do some clean-up grinding and paint it and then stoke her up to see how she works.

  5. Wow! Beautiful work so far!

    Love the braided insulation tape. No place for the smoky goodness to go but where you want it![​IMG]
     
  6. Looking good so far.
     
  7. Got her up and running over the weekend.  Still needs final grinding and paint but it did the job.  Still need to work out the kinks on temp. but nothing a little practice won't fix.[​IMG]
