I have been seriously bbq/smoking for about 10 years. I have a 1 off custom rig. I have been doing word of mouth side gig catering for a long time. Its time for me to get serious about it.
Here is where I need help. My main smoker will be heading to my alumn HS weld shop for some upgrades and a trailer overhaul. I feel like I've got that covered. However, I have a 275 gal heating oil tank I'd like to have them fab up for me into a wood fire grill. Dont plan on running an offset fire box or anything, just a simple wood fire grill to supplement my large smoker.
Does anyone have some experience building one? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Plans, dimensions, words of wisdom are all welcome.

Here is my smoker. Plan to put it on a new trailer with the planned grill perpendicular to it and standing upright.

Welcome to the ring Jagerbomber35, looking forward to seeing some more of your cooks and following your grill project. Smile
Are you wanting it to lay flat for maximum grate space?
What are the dimensions of the vessel?

Thanks Kam! I'm actually looking to stand it on end, and use the depth and width as the grill space. I'll have to get some dimensions, I dont have rhem offhand.

Jagerbomber35 Welcome to the ring Exclamation
good looking rig you got there Cool
the grub looks pretty tasty .
most oil tanks are 5 feet x 27 inches x 44 inches tall. You should have a lot of real estate.

For whatever reasons, down here in the south those oil tank cookers are very prevalent. I see them all the time for sale in Craig's list. The only thing I know about them is the metal is relatively thin and anywhere you make a cut you'll have to beef it up with angle iron.
