Help with new build!

Post by Sweet racks » February 28th, 2020, 9:00 am

Getting ready to take on a adventure of making my own smoker. I have a backwoods fat boy already and wanting to build something similar to that but instead of having the firebox underneath I want to to do a gravity feed.
So my question is does anybody have a reason why a gravity feed reverse flow cabinet smoker would or wouldn’t work?
Any help on how to do the fire chute on the gravity feed? chute size, heat tube size into the fire box, draft pipe size, how to locate the draft and heat feed pipe in the fire chute.
Any all help would be greatly appreciated!

I think Humphrey Smokers sells a model like that. It should work but I don't recall seeing any builds like that documented here. Maybe you should message Frank.

Sounds like a lot of trial and error......I don’t know that we have had one here.

But I’ve been wrong before.....lol.
