rf plate

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

okay next question on planning out my smoker build- I'm thinking about just using two halves on my plate, sloping from right to left for my drain. 1/4", butt welded, so the two pieces will be wider on the left end (but drain toward the middle) than the right end, so when in place create a gradual slope inward and toward the left.

I may not be explaining it good enough- I'm no engineer for sure, but I know I've seen a picture on here somewhere that someone has done this, and maybe could post it again or link me to it?

I didn't want to do the angle iron the middle, maybe someone could tell be why the angle iron is a better idea I may change my mind.

The plate overall will be approximately 46" wide by 23"

If the RF plate is not symmetrical, it could divert the heat to one side or the other....

My plates are equal size with the angle iron in the middle. They


slopes 1/4 - 3/8 but I can level it out very easy with my trailer wheel.
