OK.....I have found a new project to work on....This sounds like a great project to try. I already have 4 55 gallon drums I had lined up for more UDS builds. I will now start looking on craigslist for a 30 gallon drums for the inner chamber.

My build is kinda sorta an offset but its inside, fire box is open at rear upper and two cutouts on side. Once I got used to it the thing works great, cleanup is easy.

A reverse flow smoker is not much more than moving the exhaust from the side opposite the firebox to the same side, and putting a baffle underneath that directs the smoke and heat (because heat rises) from the firebox to the opposite side of the smoker, then up, and reversing the flow back towards the firebox to the exhaust.

The exhaust, being on the side by the firebox, being slightly hotter, quite literally sucks the air up creating a very nice air flow, and in mine flows so well there's almost a convection going on with it. The baffle tends to even out the heat and the smoke...
