Just recently joined the forum, but have already gotten some great info! On Memorial Day weekend, I bought an Oklahoma Joe's Highland smoker for $250. I did a trial run just to see how off the temps were, and they were pretty bad. There was a 50 degree difference between the two sides of the roaster chicken I was cooking. I originally was going to just make some small mods, but after researching, I've decided to convert it to a reverse flow smoker. I got started this weekend, with some help from a fabricator friend from work, and some design help from @totallybasted
. Didn't get too far along, but the baffle plate is fully constructed and looking good.
I will post more pics as I continue the project. I'm definitely catching the building bug right now lol :-)
