    Im thinking of building a horizontal smoker/bbq, fed by a smaller rocket style stove up through bottom. And using a removable, thick diffuser plate to spread the heat out and provide an indirect cook; but be able to remove for grilling. Cant find any simolar builds. Anyone been down this road before?

    Rocket stoves burn fuel efficiently... there won't be any smoke... you need a slow smoldering bunch of coals with hunks of flavor wood to provide smoke etc.... You would have a good oven maybe.... good for pizza....

    Ok, thank for the input! Ive read about the thin blue smoke, but the rocket design will burn too clean to get any flavour you say?

    I'm guessing that will be that case... Smoking fires are a smoldering type fire....

    Ok, thanks. I better build a tried, tested and true method and learn to bbq before I try changing stuff. Lol.
