What type of steel to choose

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I would like to know what type of steel you are using to build a smoker. 

 

Is 44w grade steel safe for a reverse flow vertical smoker ?

 

Thank you

Use mild steel.....   44W is high tensile strength...  it may not take the expansion and contraction of the heat / no heat cycling..  it may crack and warp...

Unless he anneals it first.

I looked up 4140....   ~1500 deg. and slowly cooled...
