OK, Here are 2 pics of the fire box opening and the opening to the cooker. The fire box is 24x18x24 and the cooker is about 48x30x30. The opening to the firebox is 16x5.5...before I get things welded together, do you think that is going to be a large enough hole?
I kinda came up with the idea of a reverse flow before I knew it actually existed. I got tired of a standard SFB and with the meat closer to the fire box getting cooked faster and the meat farther away getting cooked slower, basically cutting the area of smoker in half. I am finding out that there is alot more that goes into a RF than just the idea. I know it will work whichever way I go, but I would like it to be as efficient as possible.
