Looking to get idea's for the beginner ( may have gotten the hang of ribs). Also looking for ideas to build a new smoker got a char griller that seems to kick my butt more than it actually cooks. Have been in 3 KCBS Comps highest has been in 11th in brisket, not on my own but more or less watching the fire in the zero dark thirty hours. here is a pic of the smoker my cousin built, I have read that reverse flow is much better, I do like his idea as you can run either side at different temps. Really dont want to drop 3 or 4 grand for a lang.
