Reverse smoker. Pipe vs Steel Plate
I'm in the process of building a smoker. 72" x 22". During the build i have decided on a reverse flow. Problem is It has 2 doors with shelve frames already welded in. Be very hard to weld in a plate in the bottom now without doing it in sections.
So i came up with an idea and need your thoughts on it whether it would work or not. I'm planning on running a 6" id steel pipe from the firebox to about 6" from the end of the cooking chamber. Also I would have to buy the plate and I already having the steel pipe.
Question is whether this would work or not.
May not be the best cook, but I have one hell of a kitchen.
