Propane Tank Smoker

Discussion in 'Wood Smokers' started by smokerrookie, Sep 25, 2007.

  1. Well I just got the doors cut out of my tank, decided to go for a two door design....gonna through some wood in it and fire it up tonight to burn out whats in there. Its over at my one of my buddies, he just bought a brand new sand blaster and is gonna clean it up good for me. Just waiting on getting some steel so I can build me a box and some cooking racks, I'll get some pics on here and soon as my buddy gets them off his camera.

    I finished up my propane converted smoker last night. I will be cleaning it up and painting it this week.

    I removed the caps on it.

    Flipped it over and let it sit for a few weeks.

    Flushed it with water twice.

    Let it air out for a week.

    Here is the part I dont condone....try at your own risk:

    Dropped a hand full of fireworks in it and ran like I was being chase by a lion.

    The next day we started cutting into it. We were done with the first door before we realized we did not blow up.

    Glad you posted that Goat. I was going to say the same thing. Filling the tank with water is the only way it should be done. The vapor can lay in the tank for a good while even after removing the valve from it.

    And gosh! It didn't blow up or anything. Told ya.
    Are you building it as a reverse flow or straight through?
