Got to busy with life and need to stop and smell the BBQ! So am about to break into the 500 gal first build been in proses for a few months like most of you gets put to the back burner if you will. So a few last minute thoughts to bounce off.
Have a 500 gal on trailer and wondering
1: Pros cons of having a fire box or just doing the fire in the corner of the bell with a back hacht and / or side hacht to add to the fire and still doing the RF set up. Also with doing the fire box the paint will come offer easier or will it do the same with the fire in the tank itself.
a) also do u think it would take less fire to get it hot being right inside of the tank/ bell roll down and doing the RF thing? food for thought.
2: Do a grease track with drain or just do a drain at the end in the general area where it will fall and just spray it out.
3: Propane asist with a turkey fryer tourque to maintane the temp after smoking for the first 4-6 hrs put it just forward of fire area if i dont do the fire box. or put it closer tward the bell of were the plate for the RF opens up into the main chamber.
4. Last i belive whats your thought on the bottom plate that is bellow the cooking grate to kinda make it like a gaint try so I could fill it with a 2 inches of water if i choose to and it would steam and create crazy moister in the chamber. But would have a pipe on the one side with a ball valve to drain it/grease.
Thanks for your help looking to get theis knocked out soon to do two charity events for a church.
Thanks again- Jorden
