All that iron and no beer? I seen a argon bottle top cut off but no beer. How do you keep Kent working with no beer?

Looks like your going to have a good sized cooker when your done.

LOL! That's the exhaust. Gotta keep them cuts and welds straight. So no beer until after production has ended for the day Smile

Looks like a good build so far. I like the way you have it mounted on the trailer as well.

Funny thing about the green exhaust, first thing I thought was nitrogen bottle! Shocked Laughing

He has made some very nice welds. How long until the first burn?

Very nice and not at all busy to look at. The smoker, box, and trailer are so simplistic ( I know in reality there was nothing simplistic about this) that they ARE works of art. Managing to keep nice clean lines is way cool.
PS...Nice shop. Does it always look that nice? Mine looks that way only when company is coming over Cool

We got alot done this past week. Got the air intakes on the firebox figured out, a table mounted, the racks made for the cooker, and the temp. gauges mounted. So very close to the first burn Smile

Thats a super sweet build, like previously mentioned the simple lines and pretty beads adds character and looks like it will handle whatever is thrown at it. I want to see some smoke rollin outta that bad boy !!

Thanks everyone for your comments. I'm glad y'all like it Very Happy We're getting close down to the little details, but those take the longest. We're going to put a rack underneath the cooker for wood storage. Anyone have ideas or suggestions? I know the obvious would be to put the wood rack on the tongue of the trailer, but I'm going to put a Weber kettle there.

I notice no sandbags on the tongue so you must have it balanced right.So how does a RF work the smoke goes under the plate and back though the food to the exhaust.I understand but my Q is; the food doesn't see smoke till the smoke does the return trip?

Yep you got it right daddywoofdawg. No smoke till the smoke passes the plate and into the cooking chamber.

Looks like a great build you got going there.

Quick question for you.

How thick is the metal you used for your reverse flow plate?

Quick update. Got tabs welded on the end of the shelving that holds the racks. The top racks are fully removable (support bracket and all) incase I ever decide to do whole hog Cool
