Looking good, can't wait to see it all come together and TBS coming out
Installed the vents into the FB and worked our a solution for the latch, turned out as good as I could have expected it to. Spent a lot of time scratching my head...
I am so glad I have not attached the FB to CC, otherwise it would have created all kinds of access issues.. So for those of you considering building a reverse flow smoker, compete everything you can before joining the two.
Dave, Good comment! I'm absorbing as much as I can so I won't be a big pain in the butt next week or week after.

Thanks for the advice.
I tacked on the legs to the CC, and noticed right away the FB was so heavy it was not very stable....I moved the legs onto the firebox, It is much more stable, but it does look like over-kill..But that is usually how I do thing..Take a look and let me know what you think?
I have a plan for the FB grate for the wood/charcoal, just wanted to ask the group way they created the tuning plate, I have seen some posts where individuals have used a piece of angle iron to create the low spot for the draining of the water and grease.
Had a couple of hours to work on the smoker project today, with temps in the upper 70's it was a great day to work outside
I will mount this on the bottom of the firebox, after a burn, I will remove the grate and sweep the ash into and through this 3" drain.
I was concerned that the wheels might be affected by the heat, but after mounting them, It looks to me they will be far enough away from the firebox as to not be damaged.
