16" Pipe Reverse Flow

Discussion in 'Side Fire Box' started by dockman, Mar 12, 2014.

  1. I have a patio side box smoker that is 16" diameter by 1/4" wall. The CC is about 30" and FB is 16"ish long. I was considering cutting off FB and adding it to the CC to make it bigger. Then I would build a new square FB for it. My question is could a 16" x 46" CC be made a reverse flow?
     
  2. No help guys! Maybe tuning plates?
     
  3. I don't see any reason why it couldn't be a reverse flow. Could go the tuning plate route too if you wanted. Size is personal preference. Are you wanting to add cooking area to an already existing cooker? Run your numbers through the build calculator for your new firebox size, and chamber/exhaust openings. Certainly do-able
     
  4. I've been trying to remember where (or if) I saw it, but I think GaryS built a 16" reverse flow
     
  5. Yes I need more room on my existing patio smoker.
     
  6. Thanks for the reply TXSean!
     
  7. No problem. Sounds like a fun little project and should be some god experience towards a future build?? ;) Don't forget to post pics and updates
     
  8. Oh, and this is in the side firebox section, check out the reverse flow section if you haven't seen it already for more info and topics specific to reverse flow builds
     
  9. I have built 2 reverse flow but they have been bigger pipes.
     
  10. Nice, so you should be just fine then. Looking forward to seeing what you put together
     
  11. It will probably be next fall before I mess with.
