boykjo's reverse flow build 05/07/2015 update

post #1 of 219
Thread Starter 

Well..............I might as well jump in and build me one too. Picked this up for 200 bucks. I am guessing it should take me about a year to build. I'm not as aggressive as I use to be. Will probably be doing some measuring at the SELA gathering. Dont have any plans.... Just going to find one I like and draw it up and make a replica........

 

Wanted a 250 gal but this was a 320. I can always take a section out or I can cut the end off and add the smoke box with the shelving..... Its all up smoke right now....................biggrin.gif

Joe,

 

Don't know what you will be measuring at SELA but that is one huge smoker,  I'll have my 36 and Rick will have his 48 for sure.  You could fit about 3 of the Lang 36s and maybe two of the Lang 48s in there.

started today by removing 24 1/2 inches from the center. I did a search on 250 gal propane dimensions and found the length is 93 inches. Now I need to haul it to my buddys shop down the street so I can weld it together on a level concrete floor........

I was debating on the rib box but decided to leave it out........ Your rig is awesome......The smokers at the NFLG inspired me when i left.......... I had to have one....... You guys were awesome. Thanks again for letting me use the burner for the potato salad.... LA for sure..... cant wait..... It cant come soon enough.............
