Franklin Barbecue, Rising From the Ashes
 
Last August 26th on Ray's old BBQ Forum site there was a post regarding the fire at Franklin Barbecue in Austin, Texas.
 
Aaron Franklin has rebuilt and there's a very good story about the new set up with photos at https://www.eater.com/2018/5/2/17293270/franklin-barbecue-aaron-franklin-austin-fire-reopened-recovery .
 
It mentions in the story his smokers are built from propane tanks, "Each smoker at Franklin is custom upcycled by Franklin and his crew of welders from a 1,000 gallon propane tank, married to a smaller smokebox cut from a smaller 250 gallon tank, where the fire lives."

... guess Aaron hasn't read the BBQ Forum posts regarding using propane tanks.
