    500 gallon RF Build revised

    The 8" stack works perfectly along with the entire smoker. Following the calculator exactly and taking the advise of the guys here who have been there and done that lead to a great working smoker. The opening at the end of the RF plate is basically the size of the bell end. My RF plate ends at...

    First turkeys in my big reverse flow.

    I lived in MtVernon in elementary school and then lived in LaConner from my freshman year on till I moved here quite some time ago. I love the Pacific Northwest if you dont count Seattle.  Having a smoker inside out of the cold rain is huge bonus!

    First turkeys in my big reverse flow.

    I had the pleasure of cooking 3 turkeys in the 500 gallon reverse flow I recently finished building. I was sure glad to have my smoker inside on a cold rainy Thanksgiving day. I took ideas from several people here and combined what I liked with my own ideas and the final product was...

    500 gallon RF Build revised

    and as far as the bottom rack compared to the reverse flow plate I have about 4 inches or space between them and that works fine. I am sure a guy could get away with less if he needed to.

    Baffle Spacing Question.

    I feel your pain I did the same thing! Like I said if you read my build thread it will be a tutorial and what not to do. You may find some good info on things to avoid in the future as well.

    Baffle Spacing Question.

    It looks like you are trying to a woodstove as your firebox? I did exactly the same thing and still plan to use my old stove on a much smaller build that it will work properly on. A 500 gallon tank will need a much bigger firebox to work properly.

    Baffle Spacing Question.

    You will find that there is a huge amount of VERY knowledgeable help here to be had if you ask.

    First Smoker Build - 250 Gallon Tank RF Smoker

    As far as the weld on the tank goes you should be able to grind the exposed weld off flush and call it good.  For your firebox door what I did when I built mine was cut a piece of plate a inch larger in each direction than the opening and added 1"x1/2" channel around the border of the door and...

    Teriyaki chicken with Q view

    I did my first chicken in my 500 gallon reverse flow smoker I recently finished building.

    500 gallon RF Build revised

    The biggest concerns I had were whether or not my hinges would work, and if the ash drawer and plates I installed to funnel the ash into the tray would effect the airflow and or temperature of the smoker. I cannot complain about either they the hinges work but not quite as well as I had hoped...

    I have heat resistant panels to go around the walls that will be installed soon. I was very careful to watch the temps and make sure the walls were not getting hot. There never a time I could not hold my bare hand on the wall for any amount of time. There is 12" of air space from the firebox to...
