Insulated verticle reverse flow cabinet

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

Looking for some opinions as to where I am at in my build. A few dimensions are as follows, cook chamber is 15.5 x 17.5 x 24 w/ 4 shelves and fire box area is 15.5 x 20 x 9 w/ coal basket and smoke/heat race way is 1 x 15.5 on each side of cook chamber and a 3.5 diameter exhaust routed a few inches above the smoker. I was looking for your blessing that the dims for the smoke/heat race way at each side of the cook chamber would be good enough to do the job. 

Thanks,

Tomcat

Use rockwool if you want to go old school or super wool new school.If you use rock wool suit up it's nasty on the pores.Hope this helps http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/93785/backwoods-style-build

I was able to score some ceramicwool insulation from work 1 1/2 inches thick, should be ok.

Got a few build specific questions I need answered. Given the size of my cook chamber of 15.5 x 17.5 x 24 would a heat and smoke raceway/opening of 1 x 15.5 on each side of the cook chamber be adequate?

That sounds good to me.  I have seen some with a piece of flat stock mounted about 3" above the opening.  This is angled downward so that the grease runs down the side and drips into a water pan.  This will prevent pit fires from the grease running straight down into the firebox area.
