    Ok so I'm almost finished with my RF build and have a tank that I had collected earlier.  The tank I have is 14" in diameter and about 36" tall.  My plan was to make it into a vertical cooker for beercan chicken.  My plan is to build a small firebox and mount the tank to the top of it.  I would make a few small inlets to the cook chamber for smoke and exhaust straight out the top.  Figure with a setup like this I should be able to cook at a higher temp and still infuse good smoke.  I was thinking about making it 3 racks high if I have the room.  Worth building or not?  Any issues with a setup like this that I'm missing?

    Thanks
