:smokin: :smokin: Does anyone know where I could pick up some large diameter steel pipe, 18" to 22". I am wanting to build a smoker/bbq pit over the winter. I have been smoking with my small bbq grill but want to go "BIG".

Damn you can do alot of smoking with a 18-22 inch pipe.:thumb: Guess that explains the progress on the jeep:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:


How long does it have to be, seems like there might have been something around that size out in the bone yard at my dads work.

get an old full size water heater; cut off the shell, fittings and the insulation and get the steel tank out, they are the purfect size and already have the ends welded on. Just cut a door weld on some legs, and a stack, they last longer than barrels and are not as heavy as pipe, plus you can find them everywere for free.if you need more info just PM me

Hey Jason you must have got off early saturday judging by the time of your post.

That's a BIG crack pipe. I think I could get a buzz from smoking that.:shocked:

I need 7-8 feet of heavy wall pipe, 3/16-1/4' would be good. I would be able to get away with some smaller pieces since the smoker will have a 4' cooking chamber and a 2'-3' fire box. The heavier the wall the better it will hold the heat and have a more consistant cooking temperature.

I've heard that the galvanized is a no-no to use because of the toxicity. I would like to find unused pipe. I may have to find some that has been use for water or some thing, old and rusted is fine.

I saw some that was being used for pillings while on my way to Boise, but nobody was around. Thought I might get a drop if they had any. I may go down to the irrigation companies and see if they have any they would want to get rid of.
