Yes, Travis is nice and Jonestown is still a laid back small rural town.Z2V , I used to build cookers , branding irons ,gates , and whatever in Jonestown TX lived there 25yrs kinda wish I never left. Lake Travis was nice.
I have thought of that, but I'm concerned that it's a bit small to do it that way only 14"dia. I would also have to remove floor when direct grilling which I tend to do as often if not more than smoking. If I can source a larger tank I might try one that way. It's all new to me, this is my first one.
Most hot water heaters here are either copper tank or glass lined steel. The copper ones are the right shape. but not suitable, the steel ones are usually long and skinny and almost always rusted out, but keeping my eyes open, also looking for compressed air tanks some are the right shape and size but often still in use or rusted out.Pick up a hot water heater..bigger the better..
We don't do that here. Copper is way too expensive to use as a cooker, copper hot water systems almost never fail, and if they do the copper is worth a lot even in the scrap market, so you can never get one. Scrap dealers here will not sell to the general public. Besides too hard to weld.Copper ? ========= still
we don't have them, just plain copper in gravity fed types gas or electric. also solar, and glass lined steel in mains pressure units. Most new installations are instantaneous ones with Stainless steel heat exchangers.The older Rheem oil fired units have copper nickle tanks.
