Picked up a 100 lb cylinder today from a buddy. Thinking it will make a nice little grill for the front of my trailer. Any thoughts?

That should make a nice grill. The only draw back that I see is that it'll probably make your rig pretty tongue heavy.

Yes the tongue is a tad heavy now this would only add to it. But im thinking i need a grill with an electric rotisserie lol.

You don't have to use the whole thing, right? Grilling I tend to not need a great deal of surface.

So after mocking everything up the 100 lb tank was just too small so I'm gonna use this instead.
