    A Reverse Flow smoker will hold even temps much better than an Off-set.

    I would definitely try to go RF if possible.

    Welcome to your new Addiction

    Now your build looks awesome so far.
  16. thanks alot i really think revarse flow is the way to go. I have some time to do it now that is gettin cold
  17. there is no tuning plates or anything in there just use the stack to adjust temp. is 1/4 inch think enough for RF plate
