Hello to all,
I have lurked around here for some time, dreaming of the day I start my first build. Well, a 150 gal propane tank fell into my lap yesterday, and now it seems I have no other choice but to quit dreaming and start building. My intent is to make this into a reverse flow smoker, mounted to a trailer. I have the general picture of it in my head, and from my time lurking this forum I have a general idea of how to go about this project. I do however have a few questions before I start. First, the trailer, I am finding old boat trailers fairly cheap. They seem to be lower to the ground making them the right height for me to be able to stand and cook. My question is how can I determine the weight my trailer needs to be able to handle, and if my trailer is the right one? MY next question is how do I determine the right size (dia.) stack, and is there any rhyme or reason to determine the right size fire box?
Any advice is greatly appreciated, and I will be posting pics and updates on my progress with this project. I also want to go ahead and thank those who have already posted their projects and what they have learned as this is and has already helped me a great deal. Take care and happy smoking.
