Hello from Texas

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

HI

My name is Heinz and I live in the great state of Texas. I have been smoking and grilling for over 30 years and still enjoy it every time i fire up the equipment.

I started building smokers and pits a little over a year ago and enjoy it very much. I will add a couple of pictures to this. Now I am learning about reverse flow smokers and that is how I found this forum. I have a 30" smoker that I finished a little while ago and have been using. It work great but I want to make it a reverse smoker. Right of the bet I have one question. On a normal smoker I put my stack centered on the lower rack to keep the smoke and heat in. On a reverse smoker would that be the same position?

See just got here and already asking. LOL

Wolfmann,

Great looking equipment you got there!

 

I love that pit with the adjustable grill. I saw that on TV at one of the celebrity's favorite smoked food joints---I think it was Bobby Flays favorite.

 

Now that you showed us that stuff, we are gonna really expect some Great Qview from you! That and your Texas location!

welcome1.gif to SMF!! You build some nice looking rigs. I have also gotten in building smokers. It's almost as much fun as using them. Reverse flow is the best I have seen yet. As far as your stack. You can use the same placement as you have on ther now, just move it to the other end. That is the same placement I used for my big build. You can see the build pics on "new project as a humble beginning".

Thanks for the great welcome here. I will try to fire the smoker up Monday and if i do i post a couple of pictures. After that I will rebuild it to a reverse smoker and then learn how to use it. I love the smoker you build Fourashleys and that does show me exactly what i need to do with mine. I also like the out of the box thinking. That is how my upright was born. LOL

Right now I am building a dutch oven table for a guy from Lubbock. Never seen one but thanks to the Internet I know what it is. I will post some pictures of it too.
