I have a now an old grill made from a 150 gallon propane tank with a square remote firebox on one side on a small home built trailer. I was planning on adding 2 vertical smoking chambers on either side made from 100 lb (25 gallon i believe) propane tanks. I would also add another fire box in the back made from a 50 lb (10 gallon) propane tank. It would be a reverse flow but adjustable meaning that part of the bottom plate on either side would be hinged and either be opened or closed to let the heat flow where I need it to. I I have 3/4 of an EE degree so as far as I can tell from the physics equations if built right this design idea should work. But I'd rather rum it by intelligent people who have similar ideas. Any reason why this wouldn't work or be a bad idea? I can get the welding done from free by a high school welding shop as long as I give them the materials.

thanks

I have scrapped this whole idea because you could never use both vertical chambers and the tounge weight would be too much
