I managed to find this 2 hours from my house and couldn't pass it up. I bought the whole rig for $300. Other than the tire blowing out on the way home I still made out like a bandit. It needs some TLC and paint but it definitely will be good to go soon.
After getting it home and trying to figure out what to do with it I have some questions. The firebox has three pipes coming into the smoke chamber so that smoke and heat gets transferred. I thought about making the cooker reverse flow and my question is could I just extend the pipes the length of the smoker and then close off the exhaust farthest away from the firebox? Would this work much like a reverse flow plate? The only air intakes are what you see on the door. I have a feeling that's not enough for this big cooker. I don't completely understand why it has two exhausts and am not sure the opening from the firebox with the three pipes is enough either. Has anyone seen or is familiar with a cooker like this? The guy I bought it from got in Texas and he said it works great as it is and he's cooked for weddings with it. I just don't want to start messing around with it and then ruin the original design and then have a mess to fix. Any help would be appreciated!
