Well I couldn't sleep last night and was thinking. I may have a cheap and easy build for guys wanting a "reverse flow" smoker and don't have a welder or a lot of time.
I was thinking about using a double barrel wood stove kit, to accomplish this. The lower tank would be for the fire and the upper would make a great smoking chamber. The stove kit is around under $100 and the two 50 gallon barrels can be found on the cheap as well. I think I may have to experiment with it at some point. Any thoughts?
I have one in my garage for heat right now, and it flows great and holds a steady flame with a little flame management I think it would work out great.
Here is a link to the stove kit approx $45
Stove kit top barrel addition approx $30
And if you don't want to make grates approx $43
