Does this tanks works ?

Postby Dave12 » Wed Sep 23, 2020 10:10 pm

I heard a perfect pit needs rounded points, Because of convection and airflow, I got this 125 inch tank, has a small curve on each points but Mostly squared, I was wondering what’s the difference and will it work ?

Welcome to the forum Dave.
The ends of a tank do not define how well a cooker performs. There are plenty of flat ended cookers out there that perform perfectly. Your tank looks more like a fuel tank rather than a pressurized propane tank so there are some things to consider.
#1. What did it store and is it safe to use and more importantly safe to cut into it.
#2. Wall thickness. Depending on your area a thin wall tank may not be best in the winter for holding heat.
Always remember slow and steady wins the race.
