    Old skool fire box

    Had my eye on these tanks for a long time and finally snagged them by providing a handsome bribe. (A prototype pit I had in the shop). Could only fit 3 of the 4 I purchased on the trailer. They weigh about a ton each ,are 1/2" wall, 30" diameter and probably older than most of y'all on this forum. Have not got anything planned for them yet but will be some big comercial pit. Had to chain them to a big tree and drag them off the trailer 1 by 1.

        This is the firebox for the pits. Cook chamber will probably be 1/4"

      Wow. Big logs like that are getting rarer by the day. What a score! Woodworking is my other hobby and finding wide boards from big logs like this is getting tougher and more expensive every day. Again, what a score!!! Smoke on!

        Great score, the metal alone is worth $$$$. Years ago, and I mean years ago, while working in the Houston refineries, we scored about a 5' section of 30" pipe. It was thick walled as well. Only time I ever fabricated a pit was out of that section of pipe. A buddy of mine and I mounted it on his trailer and we cooked comp using it. Held heat for days. Haven't seen that pit or that guy in decades, but I bet it's still cooking for someone somewhere.

        Again, that's a really good score, I'm sure you'll make good use of it !!

            Keep finding things like this and you are going to need a larger trailer.

                  Heres some 2000 gallon tanks. I may weld one together then get it sent to Max Good for review. Sure he will appreciate a huge rusting hulk of a pit leeching rust all over his driveway. Tell him I won't move it until it has platinum medal. . Actually I cut the ends off the tanks, sell them for fire pits then plasma cut the tanks into big sections and roll them flat. 5/16" steel plate. Then re use the steel plate for cutting parts for the smokers.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill
                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  kareubequ bbq smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
