:yth:
anyway, welcome coby! stop by the intro section and introduce yourself :kewl:
if you cut the holes in the tank out to be square or use a template to cut them out circle shaped then repeat the process for the plug you want to use. then on a vice or some other uneven surface, use a dead blow or a 2 pound hammer to shape it to the shape of the tank.

:welcome: Coby!
Glad you found us, lots of very helpful guys around here.
As far as the door, i would not have the patches for the ports in it, or cut through the holes. Just my .02.


BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.

I've seen guys cut the feet off and rotate the tank and put them back on to get the ports away from the doors. ;)

Welcome to the site.

And I always try to avoid the holes being in my doors.

:LG:
This something I did on my latest rig. I put this damper between the FB and CC like this.
Here is the linkage to operate it.

This is what it looks like on the outside.

This shows the relationship between the damper and the tuning plates.

Damper open

Damper closed

When I first did this, I wanted it to give me the option to use my FB as a grill if I wanted it to. At the same time I could switch to gas for my CC. I have used the gas option alot since I changed the burner to a high pressure (160,000 btu) burner. I just place some wood in a box above the burner protector. It gives me a nice smoker for at least an hour. The new burner will heat the whole thing very nice giving me a grill at the same time. But if I'm cooking a few briskets and some PB I will use charcoal and sticks alone. Love it.

oops there I go again putting a post in the wrong spot. Frank or whoever can please remove this one. I already put it where it goes. Thanks

Welcome cobys6!
Give us a little bit about yourself in the introduction section and maybe post some pics of the tank you're working on...
You're sure to get some helpful hints from that ... :)


And on the eighth day God created barbecue …. because he DOES love us and he wants us to be happy. :D
Current smokers: Egor (trailered RF) and Easybake (tabletop pellet drive)
