Got the final go ahead from my CFO (my wife) to build a new smoker. It has been codenamed Project Smokescreen. My idea is to build it using 55 gallon drums. I plan on using two of them together for the cooking chamber. It will be reverse flow. I also plan on creating a removable divider between the two drums to make it smaller for smaller smokes. I know that I'll need an extra smoke stack. I've done the math for the firebox and all of the openings. I guess I have a couple of questions. One has anyone seen/done something like this before? Also, when it is being used in the smaller mode, will there be any adverse affects of having the larger firebox? Thanks a lot for all of your help. Pictures to come...
