First 120 gallon reverse flow trailer build

Postby Lilbuilder » Sat Aug 06, 2016 4:49 pm

Howdy y'all got this tank bout 6 months ago been working on it a little bit everyday. The plan is to have the smoker, charcoal grill, wood storage with butcher block on top and a sink. Posting this from my iPad so not sure what order these are going to be in

Wow and they are all upside down my bad, got some questions though is there any reason to put air dampers on the back or the sides of the firebox?

Your cooker looks nice. :D As soon as my blood rushes back down from my head from looking at the upside down pics I can answer your question. :P :lol:
If you do not put your intakes on the back or the side where would you put them?

It would either be the sides or back, I thought about putting them on both sides just so if the wind isn't blowing in the right direction I can open one of the two sides, unless this just sounds crazy

Placing them on the side is fine just make sure each side has enough opening to give the cooker what it needs if just one is used.

It is a reverse cooker, yeah? :laughing7: :laughing7: :laughing7:

I seriously LOL'd when I saw the new batch of pics. Upside-down aside, it's looking pretty good!

Edit: you can call this your sky down build rather than ground up!!

Half the rf plate is in, other half hopefully soon

Do y'all season underneath the rf plate before putting the plate on? Or just leave it bare? I just previewed the post and it shows right side up so let's hope it stays that way

Very nice work on your cooker Lilbuilder. :D I do not season anything till she is painted and do not bother with under the R/F plate.
