Finally starting my Oklahoma Joe Highland

Discussion in 'Reverse Flow' started by totallybasted, Mar 5, 2015.

  1. At last I have everything I need to set up my new Highland for reverse flow. I am installing a baffle plate, moving the chimney, sealing everything with rtv, sealing doors with lavalock, installing toggle latches to doors, putting a drain in the baffle plate and building a firebox.
     
  2. More photos to come...
     
  3. Coming right along...
     
  4. I know its not a custom build from scratch but this is my first attempt at a smoker. Did a lot of research and I think I have made it my own!
     
  5. Nice job    Looks like you have a nice smoker, Now fire it up !!!

  6. You certainly have made it your own.  I know Gary said fire it up, but I'm assuming you are going to move it outside first!

  7. Yes indeed. Just fired it up for seasoning. Its cold here and I wanted to be comfortable putting it together. Don't have a workshop. Only a poorly lit garage.
     
  8. Well lets see some pics !

  12. Had a leak in baffle plate so I didn't use it as a water pan. I added one on the firebox side and taadaa. I couldn't be more happy. Thank you all for your advice . So much help from the forum.

    Nice build. I'm looking to do a lot of the same except not doing the reverse flow. A couple questions.What are the dimensions of your charcoal box and convection plate? Thanks in advance.
