Very nice smoker...your build is very inspiring. I wish I had the resources to put something like that together.

Cheers

You ask what kind of heat you get from a small RF like this? Well I just finished building a 120 gallon smoker that is reverse flow and I have cooked on it just a few times but am very supprised how much heat I get in it. The first cook (ribs) it spiked right after I put the meat on and it hit 400- 450 degrees F and it took a very long time to bring the temp down below 300. i even shut the damper and it finally settled down.
Third cook was chicken thighs and I made a smaller fire and was able to keep the temps under 300 pretty easy.

But I am wondering just how finicky this 120 will be to keep temps low and slow, I am thinking I will have to micro manage this firebox to do it right temp wise...BUT for doing chicken and pork chops, country style ribs and maybe steaks this thing will be the cats ass as I can cook fast and have crisp skin on the poultry, the others will only take a short cook to get them done.

here is my 120: Still need to add the shelf...

Looks great Two Bears... I'm thinking the obvious here... maybe you just need a smaller fire for the slow and slow cooks. That FB is nice and big too.. U not gonna have probs getting higher temps at all! Great work brother!

Cheers

Default Inspiration

Talk about inspiration, I'm currently building my own "phrasty style" smoker! It will be done in a week or so, I'll be posting updates.


It is also as tropical as yours, it will be welded to a trailer and brought back and forth from Guatemala to El Salvador down here in Central America.

Thats the funny thing, the firebox is what the "calculators" say it should be at about 1/3 of the tank. Its a 35 gallon firebox.

Holy crap I quoted myself....I thought I clicked on Phrasty's post obout a smaller fire.....sorry

Awesome build, you will be making a lot of folks happy with what comes out of that. Have you ever tried smearing ripe banana on pork instead of mustard to hold on the rub? Looks like you are not in short supply!

A buddy of mine made one of thosse and it stunk up the neighborhood for abouot a week while he was purging it. He apologized later by inviting everyone over to taste what he had made from what he had made. He also put it on an old john boat trailer that he narrowed by moving the rails inward to accomidate the tank. Great job and enjoy.

Before cutting on any propane tank you should fill it with soapy water and let it sit for a week. Liquid propane will penetrate the metal. Also Mercaptane will pool on the bottom. Simply drill a small hole on the bottom when you want to drain it.
