Planning a Reverse Flow

    Here is my initial sketch of what I plan to build for my outdoor kitchen. The firebox and baffle plate will be 1/4" plate and the cook chamber will be 3/16" plate (rectangular shape). I'm still contemplating the door and latch designs but this is just trying to get my volumes and openings right to make it draft and heat properly. My first question (of many, I'm sure) is this: Should I include the area under the baffle plate in my cc volume for calculating the firbox size, and therefore everything else?

    I'm learning everything as I go so if I seem ignorant, it's becasue I am lol

    So I have decided to go with these dimensions instead. Same design, just a little smaller. How far from the baffle plate should my bottom rack be?

    I don't really see any rectangle cc type reverse flow smokers on here.

    Your bottom rack should be anywhere from 3" to 6" above the RF plate.

    Thanks. I have it drawn it at 3" off the RF plate right now.That gives me almost 8" between racks for some big butts

    Sounds good.

    That is about the same spacing I have on mine.
