So I've built a few reverse flows already ..but I'm thinking of building just a normal offset ..I was wondering if anyone has pictures of the bottom of the tank for catching grease ..is everyone just putting a drain in or are you installing some sort of trough to catch the grease ..on big cooks I'm worried about grease fire

Seriosly you keep the fire in the fire pit and the grease in the pit! Unless your running 1K F temps fire is minimal...

I use a bean can to scoop it out when cool...

My offset simply has a drain with a valve at the opposite end from the fire box. There is no trough, gutter, or any other mechanical device to direct the grease flow to it. What drains out, does so into a bucket below the drain. What doesn't, I scoop out and then wipe out with paper towels after it's cooled.

Bottom of my offset smoker is 20" below the bottom shelf, with a drain below smoke stack which drains into a 5 gallon bucket. Below the doors is a trough that catches condensation from inside of doors and drains to the rear. I don't use any water, etc inside the smoker, a lot of condensation builds up, so don't need water.

Great looking smoker, but I think you need a weed wacker. The smoker looks like a part of the landscape. I would love to have it in my backyard though!
