Hey folks first time poster here, just introducing myself & showing my new build! It’s a reverse flow…40 x 24. I followed Dave’s totorial for calculations on the build on everything but the FB door. I’m currently making a new door following his suggestions on 2 air inlets…upper & lower 😁. It smokes really good with even temps across the bottom grate & about 25-30 warmer on the upper rack. I’m building a new door because my air inlet needs to be closed off all the way to run 225. As I crack it open the temps ramps up pretty quick.

That is a beautiful bit of fabrication and welding. You are an excellent craftsman. Is it finished in Cerakote? I can’t wait to see some of your cooks.

The C10 crew cab is one rare puppy. Tell us more!

Thanks for the good words 👍. I had out painter spray 3 coats of premium clear on it. He’s actually sprayed quite a few smokers & has had better luck with his premium clear vs a high temp clear believe it or not! The crew cab C10 is a crazy project, but coming together nicely 😁. So much fab work on that one lol!
