    Default Who's built a vertical smoker from a compressor tank - need some good ideas

    My son (I got him hooked too) and I are going to try to build a vertical smoker out of a heavy steel wall compressor tank. It's about 2' in diameter and 4 1/2' tall. Want to cut in some doors, add a chimney, add some wheels, inside grates, air control valves. It's kind of a UDS on steroids. Do you have any pictures or posts of anyone that has already built one. My son is a certfied welder and can handle that part of it. We just need to see some design ideas.
    I've decided to build a 55 drum UDS for myself. We're going to have some fun making these.
    Thanks for you help in advance.

    I think Morkdach has an electric that he built from something similar. You could search his posts or maybe drop him a PM
