Great Build

I've gathered materials for a 24" 150 gal reverse flow build, simular the the meadow creek ts120p. I had wondered if the firebox on a reverse flow design would carry enough heat to provide the "warming box" the thermal energy to cook at simular rate as the main chamber. BBQ Engineer, is this what your design does? And do you have a damper to allow main chamber cooking only? Sorry if these seem like dumb questions, but just watching you project I think you may have done the calculations.

Thanks DWD.

That is incredible... working through this thread was a treat. Your hard work and attention to detail really shows. Very well done!

your pit construction

All I can say is sweeeeeet! My pit is still underconstruction and my only regret is that I didn't at least insulate my firebox but it is 3/8" so it will heat up that thing good but it won't be as efficient as yours. Good work!PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

I know this is an old post, but man, you just opened up my mind to what is possible in building a smoker!  Great Job!


How about posting up some more Q-View?

This is a sweet unit that was built from scratch.

I like your build. Is this your first insulated ?  We built our first RF but was not insulated. We are thinking of another one but insulated this time.  Any more Info or pictures would be great. Here is what we built.IMG_1098.JPG

BBQ Engineer... where did you go? It looks like you haven't posted anything in over two years. Man.. I think I speak for many here when I say this smoker you built has made you a legend here. Come back. Us noobs need your wisdom. Or, is that why you left? To many people bugging you? With the mad skills that you have, I can see that happening. At least come back long enough to give us an update on this crazy awesome smoker. I have two questions specifically. One, early in the thread you mentioned a baffle that would shut off the main chamber and allow you to use only the vertical chamber. How's that working. Could you show us pics of that system. Two, it's hard to imagine what it would be but is there anything you would change about this project?

I sure hope you see this and respond.

Looks like a great set of plans to me. Good luck. Let us know how it comes out

Two more years have passed since hearing from BBQEngineer.  Fantastic build and a loss to this forum.  I hope all is well. 


BTW:  Hello everyone from Mathews County, VA where I'm about to start a RF smoker project, my first.

I'm about to start my build and was wondering what thickness metal to use on the FB. Any suggestions? This will be a 22" cube FB to feed apx 120g CC with a 30g warmer/vertical smoker mounted over the FB.

post #139 of 141

I like 1/4"    That is what we always use



post #140 of 141

yeahthat.gif   1/4" is thin enough you can bend it into submission if needed but thick enough to hold up for a long time. Fireboxes get heavy really fast, you will find that out soon enough!
