SO, my name is Daniel, I live in california, I've been a chef for a few years now but am shifting paths to work in the automotive industry, with my new found metal working skills i'd like to build myself a smoker. I'm new to the forum but would like some info and possible help to see if my design for a modification on a RF smoker is a decent idea or not. I like the concept of having even temperature through out the smoker, so instead of having the baffle run the length of the smoker and then exit on one side, could I possibly have the inlet from the firebox in the center of the bottom, and have the outlets on either side of a baffle? the drains would run straight through the baffle and out the bottom, with smoke passing around them. I drew it up as best as I could.
