Lang Smokers And many others have had great success making reverse flow smokers.
Lang BBQ SmokersŪ Cookers - Original Reverse Flow Design
I almost had my latest smoker configured as reverse flow, but decided to go with tuning plates instead. Reverse flow is easy to learn, I am still playing with the locations of the individual tuning plates. (If I'd fire it up more often, I might learn quicker.
I love to watch projects come together. Please post more of your build!
