I'm thinking about building one for a son-in-law too. What do you have in mind...how big, how elaborate?

when I was growing up my father made one from an old refridgerator. It worked well and was nice since it already had the racks in it.

I am sure the pressure tank would last alot longer then a trash can one but since I have no clue what I am doing and I am not a welder I will have to stick with a simple stupid design.

I have made those too.

They work very well and should cost nothing to build. People give away the non-working fridge if you haul it away.

 

Trouble today is most have plastic inside !! That won't work! Old ones were all metal. You could just strip the compressor and stuff from the bottom, make holes for the smoke to get in the botom and to exit the top. Then dig a hole for a fire pit umder it or sit it up on cement blocks.

 

I have also made them from oil field pipe and one from an old 600 gal. propane tank.

BE CAREFUL THERE!!! even filled with water the tank will still pop pretty good when the torch hits a pocket of gas.

 

I see a lot of them made from old fuel oil tanks that work well too.
