    Shirley, you want some ribs...?

    Starting my fire and coming up to temp prior to tossing on the baby backs. Nice pull, subtle smoke ring, and a clean bite. What else could you ask for? Process: Smoked at 250F with minor temperature swings between 225-275 F. Utilized a combination of Post Oak and Hickory wood, which...

    Temperature variance across reverse flow offset smoker

    In a reverse flow smoker, Is it normal to have a 35 F temperature variance between one side of the smoker and the other side? Is there a way to resolve this problem? what techniques can be used to go around it? I have had An Oklahoma Joe Reverse Flow Smoker for quite sometime and I have used...

    HBT deluxe with 6' barrel $2,500 Lehigh county PA

    SOLD. Selling my upgraded from 5 to 6' barrel HBT Deluxe. It is reverse flow, and has only been used maybe 12 times since I got it last July. It is too much smoker for what I can realistically use right now, and the BBQ business start-up has been put on hold :-( Located in Emmaus PA (about an...

    When to start a smoke?

    Hi everyone I'm new to smoking as I've just finished building my first offset smoker as a Christmas gift to myself. Trying to work out when to start a smoke to make sure I'm not leaving guests hanging till 9pm dinner. I've got myself a 7lb blade roast (all the briskets were sold out as well as...

    Bubba Grills smoker / custom controller

    I bought a Bubba Grills reverse flow offset smoker a few months ago. I had Lonnie add a custom exhaust to the top of the firebox [surely he thinks I'm crazy]. I built a custom raspberry pi PID controller for it that controls a tractor flap on top of that exhaust. There are no fans, no choking...

    Recommendations for Reverse Flow Smokers(Lang, Shirley & Glenn’s Pits)

    I am looking at a few different builders for a new reverse flow pit. I am not new to smoking meat but have never owned a stick burner. I want something that simply works and works well. I am looking for “patio” models to get started and have looked at Lang and Shirley quite a bit; however, I...

    Vertical Reverse Flow Build (picture heavy)

    I’m finishing up my very first smoker build, no welding or metal working experience at all, but everyone on this site seems to make everything look so easy I thought why not. (Man was I wrong!!!) I started out by reading and researching every build I could find and decided on vertical reverse...

    63.3 Gallon RF, nearly complete

    I'm back again. My last post here was on September 19 of last year and I was getting some technical input from you guys on my build. It has been nearly a year, but it's now about 90% done, the rest of which is purely cosmetic. My project started life as an 80 gallon vertical air tank and was...

    1st Build - Reverse flow - 48"

    I thought I was the first guy to buy a welder on a whim and start building fire pits. Hahaha. I'm graduating to building a smoker and decided on a reverse flow. I took a lot of cues from Allen's Welding on YouTube. Lots of great ideas. Got measurements from...

    Back from a brisket hiatus

    I took some time off after a few dry briskets. Haven’t had much luck with my stick burner - I seemed to have it down to a science with my old WSM... Giving it another go tonight on the offset, brisket is trimmed and rubbed and ready to rock. Going to throw on some butts as well for good measure...

    Lang Clone

    Hi all, Started on my Lang clone a few days ago. Worked on designing it at night after work and between homework for my Masters class. So far, going well. Hoping to continue on it through the weekend. I think we’re going to go with lawn wheels toward the FB and maybe casters on the other side.

    First 80 gallon Reverse Flow build

    Hello everyone! This is my first smoker build ever, I usually bbq in my weber kettle (I live in Mexico) but I wanted to step up the smoking a little bit and found an old 80g propane tank in my shop and thought that it would be a cool project. The tank is around 13/64" thick so I thought I...

    Oklahoma Joe Longhorn reverse flow AND horizontal baffle plate?

    Ok, please don't laugh. We just replaced our venerable Brinkmann Smoke'n'Pit (over 20 years of year-round smoking didn't do the firebox any good) with an Oklahoma Joe Longhorn. That comes with a reverse flow system; while getting mods to finish it off (e.g., tape for the firebox and the smoker...

    Offset Smoker Location

    Hello everyone, I recently bought a new smoker that I'm super stoked about. However, the area I was originally planning on putting it is like 20 feet from a neighbors window so I have rethought about not having it there. Now I am running low on places to put it in my backyard. How close do you...
