Alright here I go. This is the first grill that I've built and because of the tanks I have and the limited amount of funds. I've decided to go with a rear fire box smoker/kind of reverse flow smoker not really sure if it can be considered that.
These are the tanks that I have. One is a forklift propane tank and the other is a air compressor tank. The legs that I am going to use for my smoker are sign post that I originally used for a welding table. The table top is 1/4 inch plate steel that I will use for my tank connector and tuning plate.
This is the top side of my smoker.
One question that I have is do I need to put a damper between the firebox and smoker or should I be able to control the heat with the with the damper on my fire box?
This is a side shot. It is just sitting on a table right now. I'm hoping to get my stand built this week end.
Alright, this is what I'm thinking. I want to put a plate inside the smoker that is tight front to back and that has maybe a two inch gap on the left and right side. I want to put my chimney right in the middle a little bit above the cooking grate so that the smoke and heat will travel down the plate to the right and left side up and over the meat to the middle of the smoker and up the chimney.
I think it might work.
This is all I have for now. I'm hoping I will get more done this weekend. I will you keep you posted and let me know what you think.
