Hi everyone, I lucked into a stainless hoper at work, looks to me like a great vertical smoker project, first off the hopper it's three pieces, a top which has two good size opening ill have to fill in, the middle section that is 42 inches tall, 241/2 x 241/2 inside dia, then the bottom that is 21 inches tall 13 inches deep with holes to fill in as well!! So what to do with all this stainless, do I firebox directly in the bottom or use the opening in the side to make a offset firebox? If I do a offset should I make it reverse flow? If gut in the bottom do I need a deverter plate? Looks to me like I can put 3 cooking shelfs 8 inches apart, add to mine or give me total new direction !!!! I'm attaching pics, thanks for your help!!
