Talking BBQ pit on trailer

well last year i built a small fit pit/ grill with pivoting trays for different levels of cooking for an FFA project(i got reserve grand champion in my division). this year i am building a BBQ pit on a trailer, my dad and i have a few ideas and i have already started on a few things like cutting the propane tank and gathering materials. i found out the ag shop at my school is building a similar one, its a team of 4 guys that wanted my help and since i decided to do one on my own they want to beat me so bad, my goal is to out do them when it comes time to show. im looking for any innovative or creative ideas i can use on my pit, i want to win! can anyone with ideas or pictures please post some up? any help is greatly appreciated!

thanks,
cooper

Ok a propane tank is kinda heavy for this use.

I have one I made out of a 200 gallon fuel oil tank. It works great but I am gonna rebuild it with a 300 gallon fuel oil tank this year. Because the 200 gallon tank is kinda small.

Being a farm boy I am sure you can find a fuel oil tank that is not being used any more.

For my trailer I used the frame of a pop up camper. It works great, I stripped the pop up camper off the frame welded in some reinforcement cross members and then bolted down some plywood. I am gonna replace the plywood with some expanded this year. Because the plywood gets slippery when you get pig grease on it.

its a 250 gallon tank, with one end cap cut off (thats what we made the fire pit out of last year) we are basically splitting it in half, one half is being cut out to be the fire box with a large hot cooking surface, that feeds up to the actual grill, which is going to have a 30 inch wide door. so the actual grilling area will be about 30-35 inches wide. as for stacks my dad bought a piece of what lloks to be old irrigation pipe, i wanted to do chrome turnouts but i dont know if he will let me. were just lookin for cool ideas, pictures would be great!
