    I have 550 gallons tank that is 90 inches long,44 inches wide and is at least 3/8" or 7/16" thick.  Plus I have piece of pipe that is 72 inches long and is 30 inches wide and 3/8" thick.  I would like to make a Reverse Flow Slow Smoker.  I will be making whole hogs,pork butts,Brisket,Sausage Elk, Buffalo, what ever else. I would like to have it with 2 slide out racks. I was thinking to use some of the pipe for a warmer or all of it.  The other thing would you hook them togather or use separate heat for each one.  How many stacks does a man  need.  How big of fire box do I need I would also like to insulate the smoker & fire box.  What kind of insulation would I need it is round to keep it in place.  I am thinking of using 4 or 5 thermometers will that be enough?  If is possable I would like to keep temp at 220-225 for 5 to 6 hours with out having to baby sit it every 10 to 15 minutes. Any other infornation would be help full.  I do not want to make one and it will not work the way it should. Thanks in advance for the help.  I was looking for advice and help but looks like I will not get any.
