1000 Gallon Propane Tank BBQ Smoker Build

I am building a BBQ Smoker out of a 1000 gallon propane tank. A friend I met on my BBQ forum drew out some very unique and interesting plans to make the smoker work, and efficient. I am documenting my smoker build with pictures below and will keep you updated on the progress. It is not an easy task converting this large propane tank into a smoker, but I am getting it done!
