Scavenger Hunt Style Mini Reverse Flow Build Contest

Post by Frank_Cox » April 12th, 2013, 5:08 pm

Here We Go!
Johnney had the idea a while back to do a contest like this so here are the :rulz:
  • Smoker Must have a cook chamber of less than 10 gallons capacity
  • you can not use anything (permanently attached to the smoker or required for use) you already have except for consumables and paint
  • you must "Find" everything that will be part of the smoker. "Find": bought, traded, picked up off the road, junk yard, salvage, get paid to haul off or any of the sort....
  • smoker must be of a reverse flow design. can be vertical, horizontal, or any other way you can think of just so it goes in one way and comes out a different way.
  • material procurement MUST be documented in your thread. Take a pic of where you got it in it's natural state and tell us about the deal
  • Cook Chamber Material, Fire Box Material, and Door Handles can not be of new materials
  • Winners will be judged by 3 categories.... Cheapest Build Cost, Most Unique Design, and Best Appearance
  • there will be 3 winners, ties will be decided by a re-vote between the ties
  • Theme builds get 2 "Bonus Votes" added to their total member votes
  • You MUST post some Q-View that was cooked on your completed smoker before your build is considered "Complete"
How to enter
  • Start a thread in this category with the phrase "scavenger build entry" in the title of your thread.
  • Entries start today. entries will no longer be accepted after May 12th 2013
  • Contest expires July 5th 2013
  • all threads will be "Locked" on July 5th 2013 at midnight or so
AlleyRat58 will come up with the prizes for 1st place in each category
This is gonna be awesome!!!!!

Everyone should enter this contest.....
The first 5 completed builds win a FREE SmokerBuilder T-Shirt

Maybe Rick should pay you to come up. Gotta count against the budget! LOL!!!


Nothing I like more than to kick back with a Zima and a Virgina Slim reading 50 Shades of Grey with DCman (The Czar).
