    My name is Tom and I hail from the great state of Idaho! I've done quite a bit of catering and things seem to be picking up a bit so I decided that my cooking methods should as well. I have been smoking / grilling on a Traeger for years and it has treated me well. This spring I intend on starting a project that I am in hopes I can get some help with the design / build from you guys! 

    I have a 500 gallon propane tank which I have popped the valves off a couple months ago and recently filled with water. Next step is refining the design. I want it to be a reverse flow smoker. I was thinking about insulating the firebox. Any recommendations? What size should the firebox be? How high off the bottom should I put the smoke / heat baffle? Should the baffle slope any particular direction? What guage of expanded metal should be utilized for the racks? Any other help would be wonderful!!!

    Hello and welcome Tom, I can't help you with your 

    questions on the smoker.

    I'm thinking that you would be better off going out into the

    forums and into smoker builds.

    I'd put in a link but don't know how yet.

    Just stopped to say hello and good smoking with 

    your build.
