I actually noticed the longer I was testing, the temp ranges narrowed a little bit more. All I know is that my wood is going to last way longer with this cooker than my other one.

I sure hope you find a tank soon, I might start searching your area for you!

All you need is some paint, and she'll be finished!

The shape of the tank is interesting, and I am wondering about the temps over the whole cook. In my smoker (longer and narrower), the temps are hotter closer to the firebox. However in your case, the temps are higher on the opposite side. I wonder if the shorter but wider pan facilitates convection rather than radiation... I would like to see your temp averages over a full cook, especially once the pan on the side of the firebox is heated for a while.

Another thing is that if I want more even temps, I raise the end opposite of the firebox (probably facilitating convection), but if I do want different temps (for simmering beans), I lower the same end. Maybe once you are up and running you could do some experementation.

Great job Ryan! Now comes the fun part... Grinding that sucker clean... Or did you say you were going to get it sandblasted?

Cheers

I am cooking a brisket and two racks of ribs on sunday so I will keep a close eye on what the temps are during an entire cook.

On my 36" reverse flow, my temps are always hotter on the opposite end as well. I wonder if it has more to do with the distance the air is traveling?

Next week I will be doing some clean up work on the welds, but after that I am going to take it to be sandblasted! I may need to wait until spring so that my garage will be warm enough to paint the thing.

EXCELLENT FRIEND!!!! I am thoroughly impressed and can't wait to see it painted. Not only does it look fabulous, but I bet you got a good deal of practice on your welding as well. I'm glad you decided to go ahead with this tank for sure.

Ryan,

I might have to stop by and see this thing in person sometime. I am just down the road from you in Kasson/Mantorville. We get up to the cities on a regular basis. I have been following along and am using some of your design in mine. Great job on this reverse flow!

Even though this cooker is being designed as a patio cooker I am seriously considering buying a small utility trailer to make it easier to move. Any thoughts?

Make a trailer that you can attach & lift the smoker. People can move a boats, 4 wheelers, wheelchairs with a power lift gate, why not a specail traler that hooks up to your smoker. Maybe hydrolic or air bags or manal crank to raise & lower. To bad the axle goes all the way acoss the trailer. It gets in the way. Trailer that has wheels without one long axle and make it a wrap around trailer to pick it up.

Now that I look at that trailer properly, that's the exact same on I have my rig on... Only difference is that mine's black.

Cheers

Go for it. I am bolting mine to the cross members and the 1/8 inch deck plate I am putting on the trailer. You can always set it up so you can just jack it up and slide a set of wheels back on it. Then you are ready to go anywhere you want with it.
