I have decided to build my first reverse flow smoker. I have a 24 inch diameter piece of 1/4 inch wall pipe that is 24 inches long. I have used the calculator and have to sizes for the openings and fire box but have the following questions:
1 Where is the best place to put the intake holes for the firebox?
2 Does it matter where I place the reverse flow plate in relationship to the grill and the firebox to cook chamber opening. That is does it have to be within so many inches of the grill to work properly?
This is my concept. I am not married to it and would really appreciate any constructive criticism that anyone could offer me.
