Where to find tanks

Post by crazypa95 » November 19th, 2020, 10:08 pm

Hi all

I'm new to the site and didn't know where to post this but I'm just wondering where everyone gets their 120 to 500 gallon tanks to build smokers? I'm from British Columbia and have built one out of a compressor tank but still a little hard to find. Thanks

There is a propane tank rebuilder a mile from my house....they have a mountain of bad tanks...about two acres worth. Scrap prices are down so they are stacking them deep right now. I can buy 250-500 gallon tanks for $125......
