I am new on here I have built a lot of big cookers and smokers over the years. For the last ten years I have not done much with this I have been happy with my last one. I have started a new one I miss the fabrication as much as the cooking. My cookers have always been direct cooking method and a few indirect . I am trying to learn more about the indirect method with offset fire boxes . I would love any input on tuning plates vs reverse flow for more even cooking. My barrel I rolled myself from new metal it is 36" wide and 6'-0 long the side walls are flat so I am not sure if reverse flow would work properly. All the ones I have seen are from propane tanks with round ends would it make more sense to use tuning plates and exhaust from the far end or both end?.Or would reverse flow still work and be better.
