Build Offset from 47kg gas cylinder


Recommended Posts


Just finished reading Aaron Franklin’s book, so all motivated to build my own offset smoker.

Has anyone built one from a 47kg cylinder?

Diameter is 38cm, which seems enough room for a brisket or rack of ribs.

Had a look on YouTube, but those builds seem to be bigger tanks.

Would be good to get opinions based on an actual build.

I have made several “Fun” bbqs from gas cylinders, but never a offset.

Are you looking to do a reverse flow? As I think you might be tight for space.

Are you looking to use a smaller cylinder for the fire box?

You will need to use a calculator suggest as Feldons to get the correct size fire box to main chamber size, stack size etc.
