I live about 10 minutes outside of Lexington, NC so of course I've grown up on smoked pork bbq. I've been smoking various meats since I could walk, but came across this place when I was searching for a reverse flow design for a trailer I am building to take tailgating this fall. I've been reading for a few months, but finally decided to join a week or so ago. This forum is far and away the best place I've found after scouring the internet for smoking ideas and suggestions. Most of my experience has come from direct heating from coals with permanent cinder block pits, but I've also done some vertical smoking with a Brinkman smoker. I'm a member of my local volunteer fire department, and twice a year we hold a BBQ Chicken fundraiser, normally cooking anywhere from 650-800 chickens. My first build from scratch is a 5.5ft by 30" reverse flow smoker with a 20" diameter, 30" tall offset firebox that will be mounted on a 8ft by 14ft trailer (formerly a tag along camper). I'm hoping to have everything done by this fall for college football season. Hopefully in the next couple weeks I'll have some pics coming to show the progress.
