Double barrel reverse flow smoker????
I built a UDS 2 years ago and I love it. One problem...its just not big enough. So I want to build something a little bigger because the Mrs will kill me if I have 2. I'm planning on a double barrel smoker (55 gallon on top with at 30 gallon below) but I'm concerned about hot spots. So I was thinking about putting a single flu pipe on one end and then use a section of another 55 gallon drum to direct the heat across the bottom. You know how it goes from there. Do you guys think this will work?
A second question if I may, can I get away with lump charcoal as fuel?
