Why Reverse Flow?

Discussion in 'Reverse Flow' started by trvsjnr, Aug 10, 2010.

  1. Hello all! I'm in the beginning stage of planning my smoker build. I had never heard of a reverse flow smoker before joining SMF. What are the benefits of RF? Can you give me the pros and cons of RF? Thank you in advance!

    The pro's of an RF design are, a more even temp, no hot spots, you don't have to move your meet around to avoid (hot spots) etc...The cons, the only one I can think of is some larger Designs seem to use alot of fuel. But most (even the larger ones) are very efficient once they get warmed up! Hope this helps[​IMG]

    The pros are great food all the time.

    The con is, not everyone can afford one or two or three.
