Thanks, for the welcome everyone!

I've be smoking on a duo-grill chargriller which I'm happy with so far and have upgraded to a larger off-set smoker a couple of weeks ago. I'm getting used to the getting the heat and smoke for most things I've tried. I'm also in the process of building a reverse-flow smoker out of a 275 gallon oil tank and I'm running into a couple of questions and I'm hoping to get some idea's/help from people. I think I figured out the size of the firebox, but I'm still looking to see what size opening is required into the cooking chamber, and what size stack and baffle plate I will need. I will try and post some pictures of the build, it is also a combination of the "Rat Rod" theme, It's being built on a 69' chevy truck platform.


Thanks a bunch,
