What a nifty setup! Is there any chance you give the long and shorts (dimensions) of that rig? I'de like to see what you did w/ the propane in the sfb too. Great little smoker!points.gif

i'm updating my iphone at the moment but as soon as i'm done i will post some of the pics from the build. the cooking chamber is 12" diameter and 20" long, the fire box is 12" diameter and 12" tall. the firebox calculation sheet said it should have been 8" tall with the 12" diameter but since i was going to install a gas burner i wanted to make it taller. the flue size is 2-1/2" ID piece of conveyor roller (pipe) and the burner came out of a blue rhino brand portable gas grill. lowes had it on sale for $19.00 today on clearance and they were out of them so i got the demo for $15.00. the burner is only 10k btu's so it don't get quite hot enough for cooking only with gas but it makes a great log lighter! since i work with gas for a living i may drill out the oriface to squeak a few more btu's outta it.

i used 2 of those portable air tanks for the build. the one for the firebox i cut 8" out of the middle of it and welded them back together. that paint was real tuff to get off the outside before i painted it. must have been some kind of powder coating or somethin.

i'm guessin reverse smoker is the exit pipe is on same side as fire box is....what is the purpose of the exit stack on same side as fire box.........bob

post #18 of 26
So the smoke can get out! Seriously though, there is a horizontally mounted convection plate in the cook chamber which is below the cooking grate and runs from the fire box end almost to the opposite end. The smoke and heat travel under this plate, flow upwards at the end and pass back over the meat towards the fire box and out the stack. Makes for a more even heating of the cook chamber in theory.

Hey Duck, good job on the nice cooker. There are at least two of us in MA, a couple in Maine and PA and some I don't know of who have mini reverse flows. Wouldn't it be cool to have a gathering of folks cooking on just Mini Smokers? We could bill it as The Worlds Smallest Cook-Off!!
