Default Start of the winter pit build.

Well, today i met with my welder and fabricator to go over our initial ideas on our winter pit build. I have a trailer we are going to mount it on.

Thinking of doing a insulated reverse flow.

60" with a 1/4"x18x18 fire box.

going to use a 55gallon drums welded together. 1x1 tube on the outside and insulate between the drum and the outside skin. 1/4" plate drum end were fire box will attach and 1/4" plate from fire box to opposite end with 8" gap for heat and smoke.

Am i off track??? Im open to ideas if you guys have any.

Was thinking the insulation will help hold heat more efficiently than just doing solid metal.

I plan on entering my first competition next spring and wanted to make my own pit rather then buy one.
