Getting started in Tx!!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm just getting started but had some luck with my first turkey. We just moved and I couldn't find the meat thermo, but everyone said it tasted awsome, i'm excited!! I will post some pictures when I figure out how. My grandfather had this smoker built for his by someone in conrow Tx. about 15 yrs. ago and it seems to be a little backwards from the smokers I've seen before the firebox and the stack are on the same side, so I'll be looking for some advise!! I can't tell you all how happy I was to find all this information and how good it all looks!! And just think how my parents always said smoking was bad for you, I can't wait for them to come visit and EAT there words!!PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

O.K. I got one loaded. Any advise on this smoker would be welcome

Sounds like it turned out well. There are lots of roads you can travel to get there and it sounds like you found one that worked for you.

Welcome to SMF glad you joined us. Firebox and exhaust on the same end may very well be a reverse flow. You got any pics of the smoker and the inside of it?

First off, welcome aboard! Glad to have ya here. It does sound like your rig is a reverse flow. If the heat/smoke must travel through a chamber to the far end of the smoker before it can reach the meat in the cooking chamber, it is reverse flow. Most traditional offset stick/charcoal burner rigs have wide-ranging temperature fluctuations in the cooking chamber from end to end, usually referred to as 'hot spots'. In general, that's because the fire is so close to one end of the cooking area. In a reverse flow, temps are much more consistent throughout the cooking chamber and tend to be easier to maintain.
