you dont need that much room between the bottom grate and the reverse fllow plate. I have about 4.5 inches on my current build.  Give it more flow under the plate, mine is 8 inches from the bottom.

Sweet thanks...how much of a gap at the end of your plate?

Ok , this is a 100 gallon propane tank I added 12 inches to the center to make it taller. See where the welds are where the end caps were originally welded on, thats where my pate ends, about 8 to 10 inches from the end

Heres a more up to date pic, look where I blended in the firebox, the lid to the fire box extends into the cooking chamber, one solid piece.

Thats a good looking smoker i wish i could of found a 100 gal but my 60 gal will do for now.. mine is getting closer i painted the trailer last night went with banner red for the tongue and frame of trailer. Then my fire box, cook chamber and legs will be black with some chrome diamond plate fenders. I should have my fire box and tank mounted together tonight i hope should be done in a week or so

Looks like we are just about at the same place, nice seeing it almost looking like a smoker isn't it.

Ya my wife thought i was crazy when there was just piles of metal an air compressor and a rickidy little trailer sitting in my garage i look back on the pictures and its a good feeling seeing how far it has come
post #77 of 93

My wife still thinks I'm crazy, but after I started doing the slow cooking method instead just grilling (yes I was heavily influenced by the TV show), she has been supportive and is almost as excited as I am to get this finished.


I'm glad I took pictures as a reminder too.

post #79 of 93

I know I have one heck of a mess to pick up in my garage when this one is done. Plus , it will take some time for the burns , cuts and metal splinters to work out of my hands and arms.
