TT’s Old Iron Brewery RF Smoker build

Post by TTsOldIron » December 5th, 2018, 10:44 pm

Hello, my name is TT and I am building this smoker from a 500 gal decommissioned propane tank for my new brewery and BBQ restaurant. I have built some smaller smokers before but none as important or big as this is going to be. I’m sure I will have questions and I appreciate all the help i can get. Cheers!

So far I have welded 5 of the sides to the 34x34x34 firebox made from 1/4 Steel that has so far been just scrap I have had around or from the local scrap yard. My plan is to insulate the box since it will be cooking year round up here in the PNW.

So I had some C channel laying in the field waiting for it’s time to become something. It’s time has come, it is going to be the frame that my smoker will sit on. Gotta love free metal!

I need to get on of those fields, with the free steel in it!

Nice start. It’s always great to repurpose stuff.

Ahh a steel growing field. I've heard of those but never seen one. My steel tends to gather behind the shed and together they make a concerted effort to become static sculptures of ferric oxide.
