I built a reverse flow smoker - loosely based on the lang 36.
Only made the drum 18" diameter and 36" long
Firebox is 14.6" x 14.6" x 14.6"
The question comes with the baffle plate - that is a touch higher than what I wanted, so the flow area underneath the baffle is a bit bigger than what the xls calc sheet calls for although I made the restriction at the end, where the baffle ends - very close to the correct value.
The entry into the firebox is as large as the area under the baffle plate (quite a bit bigger than what the xls sheet calls for).
Would it be better to decrease the hole from the firebox to the recommended size, or is it OK to have that too big and have the baffle plate end be the restriction ?
