Cranked up the new smoker

today. Wanted to see how the reverse flow worked before going too much further. Works like a champ. Here are some pics.

You'll notice that in Bill's pics, the smoke exhaust is on the same end of the pit as the firebox. The heat goes in the bottom of the horizontal but never touches the meat until it's on it's way back across the pit toward the stack because of a channel or pipes that channel the heat to the opposite end before it's allowed to flow back across and under the meat on the pit.

Hey Bill, that is really great man. I would love to see the guts with a little tutorial on how a reverse flow works.

What is a Reverse-Flow System?

Heat and smoke travel from the firebox into the cooker - but do
not go directtly into the cooking chamber. The heat and smoke
go under a steel plate inserted in the lower part of the cookers,
then circulate into the cooking chamber traveling under and over
the food racks and up the smoke stack.

What does this mean?

1. Health Reasons
No carcinogens get on the food

2. Smoke & Heat Under & Over the Food Racks
No turning of the meat

3. Guarantee
We guarantee our grill to run no more than 5
degrees from front to back

4. Steel Plate
Can be used for water smoking also
Just found this on line. This is why I went with the reverse flow.
