How to choose a design for your new build

  1. Good evening boys and girls.  

    I'm planning on starting my first build this year.  Original plan is to make a reverse flow as I'm heard that it keeps a more stable temperature.  But it just occurred to me, it may be better that I not jump to conclusions.

    So, I figure I'll ask the people that have done this before and have worked with the various models.  

    What do you prefer and why?

    Hello FB,
    I am in the starting stages of building my first smoker and after cooking on several types I decided to go with a jacks old south water cooker hybrid...I live the design and the fact that I can walk away from it is gonna be great (I am planning on using a digi que for temp control

  4. Very nice.  I was considering a reverse flow.  I have a guy at the scrap yard that wants to sell me a 400 lbs propane tank, figured with a 99 gallon capacity I could make something interesting with it.

    Can anybody tell me the pros and cons of a reverse flow?  I noticed that the temp was relatively constant through out the cook chamber but other than that?
