Any pit designs around?

Postby Bbq Chris » Tue Jun 20, 2017 9:47 am

Hey guys. I'm from South Africa. I've been smoking in a weber and it's been fun. I want to build an offset smoker for the yard. Maybe 3 to 4 foot CC.
Are there any good plans that someone can share?
I can't get large propane tanks here but I can get the steel rolled.
Any help would be appreciated.

There are plans out there that you can purchase but you really do not need them if you ask questions here and are a decent fabricator you can knock out a cooker in no time.
Here is a link to the Pit Calculator my email is also attached to the help link on it.

Thanks for the info so far. I'm thinking of a reverse flow. Not sure to add a warmer or not.
Do you think a warmer is worth it? Considering it won't be for competition.

I'm thinking reverse flow. Is it better than standard offset? Also do you think it's worth it to add a warmer?

I prefer a regular offset with tuning plates. I would put a warmer if I had the material.
