    Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages, greetings from tennessee.

    Seems to be a single minded sort of a place here, so i should fit right in being obsessed with smoking food.

    I use the BGE and have been for bout 15 years or so, and am wondering bout the proper procedure/tutorial/description, of anyones opinion on how thin blue smoke is consistently produced with wood. The BGE gets stuffed with charcoal and it never fails to do its part if i do mine. But....

    ...having said that , i am building a reverse flow smoker for catering and would like to know if anyone can point out an already existing thread that is close to a tutorial or instructional if you will. It would be great if i could learn without having to re-invent the wheel. Changing from charcoal to wood requires a bit of a different touch i believe and if someone who has done what i'm speaking of would care to speak , i promise to listen.

    You would probably recieve a medal of some sort from the folks around here who begging to see me produce my barbeque on a larger scale:)("here" being my neck o the wood)

    I've done quite a bit of reading in here and haven't read it all nor do i know it all , but haven't found what i seek. But i have found everything else:)

    Anyone care to point out a direction/thread/etc.etc.?????
    Offer an opinion perhaps?

    Welcome to SMF, huckfinn! I can't help you much with your search, but there are lots of folks here who have built their own smokers and some of them are reverse flow. I'm sure someone will be along shortly. I just wanted to say Hello and invite you to make yourself at home.

    Gentlemen thank you for your help

    i have failed you in my explanation of what i seek. i rambled and did not separate my rants. What i seek specifically in my endeavor to convert from charcoal to wood is the specific use /application of the wood itself.

    Fellow smoke pilots , i had read the MOST excellent description /tutorial about the wonders of reverse vs tuning plate type smokers and have learned a great deal.

    But, there does not seem to as large a discourse on the subject of thin blue smoke itself .

    Does anyone lay claim to Master of the Flame?
