Look under cooking on this site. I have pictures of mine with a pig on it. Mine is very simple and basic.

I used 2x2 angle iron, 3/8 expanded steel for the grate. I used the 2x2 angle iron to make the frame of the grate for the grill. Then I used some of the angle Iron and welded it to the sides of the tank so the grate would sit on it. I use wood and charcoal for heat.

I used a cutting torch to cut the tank in half. I used some hinges from the harware store to hinge the top. I just welded them to the two halves. I used some scrap chain to keep the top from opening all the way. I mounted the tank to an old pop up camper frame. I had some 2x4 steel tubing laying around. So I used that to brace the floor. I used 1/2inch plywood for the floor to stand on when cooking.

You probably know this, but either "burn out" the tank, or at the very least, fill it with water before you cut in. The alternative sucks.

Depends on long it has been since it had fuel oil in it. Mine wasn't used for years. So when I took the fill cap off it didn't smell of any fuel oil. So I just started cutting.
