I'm new to the forum, but have been reading and thinking about a reverse flow smoker for some time. I have a 300 gallon tank, a 100 gallon tank and a trailer frame . I'm about to jump right in and get started.
I am looking forward to any advice I can get as the project unfolds.
Cylinder Tank 60"x40"
Firebox Intake (6) 3.5"x4"
Firebox to Cook Chamber opening is 10.3" (233 sq. in)
Baffle plate 10.3"
Reverse Gap to Cook Chamber is 7" (245 sq in)
1. Will the top of firebox being an inch above entrance to CC/ baffle plate have any diverse affects?
2. What is the recommended height for the bottom cook shelf from the baffle plate?
3. Intake flow-is there any advantage to intake and the output of firebox being opposite side (as in diagram intake on the right and out on the left?)
4. As I start to work with trailer I know I'll be asking questions regarding axle location?
Please feel free to point out any problems or flaws that will save me some frustration
