      Terry,
      Nice looking job !!! What did you use to cut the drum out with? We tried a plasma cutter at school, just as bad as an oxy torch. Got much better with a cutoff wheel on a grinder following it with masking tape to keep a straight line.
      Looks like you made a lip on the inside of the door opening also?
      thanks for the pics, bert

          How'd you clean the inside? I've been looking for a tank for a smoker with no luck so far. I'm too chicken to cut into a propane tank and the only compressor tanks I've found are too expensive. A guy around the corner has drums that had die lube in them and I've been wondering if they could be cleaned enough to be safe?

              Look at construction sites. there were a bunch of barrels at my worksite that aluminum and some metal came in (washers,nuts,bolts,etc). Also I used to pick some up that had laundry soap in them (worst case scenario=deer meat comes out smelling like Tide the first time you use it ?)
              Hope you find some clean ones...
