I've owned and cooked with Bubba Grills' reverse flow smokers, and I currently own and use a large Lang.

I would suggest to you that putting the exhaust at grate level is a mistake, especially on a reverse flow. The #1 key to this working is that heat rises, and you want your exhaust at the highest point and the hottest point on your smoker, that is at the highest point and as close to the fire box as possible. By doing this you've created a smooth air-flow to/through the exhaust which basically draws the smoke to it.

My competition daze are probably behind me now; I pretty much cook for family, friends, and frankly the peace and solitude I get from smokin' on an offset...
Was Lang 84DX, now Bubba Grills 250R and many Weber grills
