Hi All,

I am new to smoking and looking to build a custom reverse flow smoker. Need your advice. I've just drawn up a sketch/plan of what I want and would like your feedback on it. Would also love to hear your suggestions and improvements. I'm looking to build it with 1/4 inch steel plates.

Really looking for your advice.

TIA!

Welcome to SMF WhistlingHog, please drop by Roll Call and introduce yourself, tell us a bit more about yourself. Search is your friend here, most likely your question has been answered previously.

I recommend lowering your air intake #2 to at or slightly below the fire grate. This will direct air where it aids combustion the most. Also consider adding another air intake about 2/3's to 3/4 up in the firebox. This second intake does not add too much combustion air, but helps establish heat and smoke flow though the cook chamber.

Have fun!!!

Yes, welcome aboard WhistleHog. Have a look around. We have a Reverse Flow sub-forum within the Smoker Builds forum I'll bet you'll enjoy browsing and posting your progress at.
