Hey ya'll from N.C. I just joined my first ever forum. I've been smoking butts and briskets on my old Brinkman horizontal smoker for 20+ years. Now I have decided to build a 250 gal. propane tank reverse flow stick burner. As I searched the internet for helpful tips on my build I came across this forum and all I can say is WOW!!! What a great source of info from many well seasoned cooks .I have already changed a few ideas I had for my build. I scratched the idea of a propane backup for heat source after the potential bomb stories I read. I'm in the very early stages since all I have right now is a tank, a trailer and a vision. I'm sure I will have many questions (hopefully not dumb ones) Thanks for all of your input!!!
