Hi guys,

My name is John and I'm from Melbourne, Australia.  I've found answers to questions from time to time on your forums, when the search engine has taken me there.  After a number of these I had a look at your site and thought, what am I waiting for!

I've been low and slow cooking for a few years on nearly any weekend I can. Low and slow hasn't been big here is Australia, but is starting to take off now, so we are seeing some good bbq places opening up.

I've got a ProQ bullet smoker (like the WSM but with multiple stackers), and a Webber kettle.

After doing some research I've decided to build a reverse flow offset smoker.  

I've bought some new 24" steel pipe that I plan to use for the smoker and the firebox.  Am planning to use 1/4" steel for the baffle plate as well.

Still working through some aspects of the design.  

I'm planning to post some pics as I go, and will be happy with feedback.  

Oh and yes, I've always wanted to be able to weld, so am teaching myself to weld.

So let the fun begin.
