Firebox size?

Post by Smokeverything » March 25th, 2020, 10:12 pm

Hello I'm new to the site. I am looking to build a smoker out of a 1000 gallon propane tank. The idea is to make it 2 chambers. My question is what size of fire boxes do I need? Thanks

Look at the calculator on smokerbuilder.com it'll tell you everything right there.
@Frank_Cox and the crew built one (1000 gallon) couple years ago.

That is a super big smoker for a first build. Very ambitious of you!

Frank also sells plans for a tank of that size that will assure your hard work produces an efficient smoker.

Darn if their isn’t....hard to believe.

If you are interested, you might send Frank a note asking if/when he could put together something for you or might have some good ideas for you.
