Well, i've been smokin for a few years on a cheapo Lowes Charbroil smoker and now that the firebox has rotted away i've decided to build a monster(for me that is). I'm upgrading to a 250 gal 30 inch dia. main smoker body. I have a few questions that I have asked in the build section. I am also torn on wether or not to go reverse flow? I think i've decided that steel prices will limit me to a conventional smoker. I plan on mounting it on a 5x10 tilt trailer that I never use because, well.. this thing is gonna weigh a ton when it's done! I look forward to all the help I can get from this site!
