Lang smokers stack question
I'm the first to concede my ignorance, so please know that I'm genuinely asking this to understand. On the Lang brand smokers, why is their stack on the same side as the firebox? I thought you wanted your stack *opposite* the firebox so the smoke flows over your food?

The Lang smokers are a reverse flow design. There is a steel plate under the grates that runs from the firebox end to almost the other end. The channels the smoke and heat under the plate and the up into the cook chamber and across the food to the stack end. This design gives more even temps across the smoker.

^^^ more even temperatures and somewhat more even smoke flow.

It CAN'T be used as a grill though. The steel plate/baffle is directly under the grate. WONDERFUL design for a smoker.
