Hi everyone, I am new to the forum but have drawn a lot of ideas from posts on here over the years, so I thought I would share the story of my new smoker build. It is a 500 reverse flow made from a propane tank, with a warming cabinet/second cook chamber. The warming cabinet and fire box are...
Good day the place I work at has an old 60 gallon air compressor tank laying around and I was thinking about turning it into a reverse flow stick burner. Would the tank thickness be to thin and save my time and find a propane tank.
Thank you for your input
I've been reading through all the great info on this forum for a while, but this is my first time posting.
I'm based out in Switzerland, and so getting hold of decent BBQs is challenging. Anyway I just managed to find and picked up a new OKJ Highland.
I really wanted the reverse, but...
Hi all welcome to my 60 gallon build. I got this donor tank and I’m looking to build a simple RF smoker for my patio. I aspire to build a bigger cooker, and hoping to learn as much as I can with this build before investing into a bigger tank. I’ll be following the “how to build a reverse flow...
Sorry for the repeated question regarding FB/CC configuration but I've hit a bit of a wall and hoping someone can shine a light on what to do next.
My questions are :
1. Does it matter that the FB/CC opening is significantly larger than the opening at the opposite end of the CC?
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...
I am currently in the process of designing a vertical reverse flow smoker. Prior to building I would like to take all steps necessary to make sure I have the proper airflow throughout the entire smoker. Can anyone flood me with suggestions on how to ensure that this happens? The...
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.
Please help I am ready to start building just want to double check all the calculations they are as follows
35.5 x 47.5 inches all measurements are in inches
CC volume in cubic inches 47,510
fB/CC opening 190 cubic inches 34 x 8.5 inches
Area under RF plate 190 cubic inches 8.5 inches
I’m getting a custom 54 inch reverse flow smoker being built for me. It is a reverse flow smoker with two slide out shelfs. I was wondering how many probe ports do you think I should have in it. I was planning on 4, one on each side of the smoker for each shelf. Is that too...
23.25 ID X 36 Long X 3/8 Pipe = 15284 sq in
FB/CC opening = 61"
RF Plate Opening from Firebox = 61"
Area Under RF Plate - 61"
RF Plate Open End = 61"
Firebox = 19" Tall X 20.5" Wide X 16" Deep = 6232 (33% = 5087sq in)
FB to CC - Radius 11.62 x Segment 5.25 = Segment of 71.848 sq in" - 1.5 lip...
