Hey Day..looking good. I'm not a big fan of the RF stuff. Attempts to circumvent too many laws of physics in my view. Hot air goes on the bottom. A purist might consider a long narrow fire door on the back side through which coals and/or charcoal might be shoveled. Need a burn barrel for that. That would make a doozy of a direct cooker.

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!
