View Full Version : Reverse flow smoker build

I wanted to do a test burn to see how it functions before paint and it did better than expected. I don't think a second intake will be needed like everyone thought it was over 300 with the door closed and damper open with just 2 or 3 splits easily dialed down to 250. I cooked a wagyu beef sirloin roast and used mountain mahogany wood. I ended up building a warmer box off of the side of the firebox double wall next to firebox to keep temp down. At 250-275 in the cook chamber made it 135-150 in the warmer box. I started painting it i will post more pictures after its 100% complete and up for sale. This should be a $1200 smoker? It also comes with a fire raker and custom made charcoal basket

Not going to lie I really thought you'd need more intake but glad it worked out well. Perhaps the pictures didn't give good relative sizing in terms of the smoker versus the intake so maybe that's why a few of us thought you'd need another intake.

Grub looks good, nice smoke ring! I can't really give much feedback on price as this is such an atypical looking cooker that the market might be quite small. I will say it's good that you're not coming out of the gate with a $5500 price tag like some of the stuff in the "Craigslist" threads. haha Good luck and hope to see pics once it's finished.

Very nice craftsmanship. The smoker looks good even before the paint.

I'm Not Fond of the Toaster Oven hanging off the Firebox but otherwise it Looks Pretty Nice.
