Here is the start of my 100 gallon build.

I decided not to offset my firebox, but instead to insulate it and put it directly under the whole tank.



Door cut out with tank welded on base.



Shows the firebox to cook chamber opening. This will come up and hit a reverse flow plate, so the exhaust will be on the right side.

I like the compact style too..

Even with a RF, will the right side still be warmer than the left or will the RF plate balance it out?

Hopefully it will balance out. I do not plan on welding the RF plate in until I test it. I may need a bigger opening to the firebox. Also how thick should the RF plate be ?

I would think 1/4" would work best. Im sure KAM will chime in on that.

Maybe I should be asking how thin is too thin for the RF plate?

I really don't want to buy a full sheet of 1/4" for a 16"x30" piece?

I like it alot. Small footprint, efficient heat. I'm looking forward to seeing how your low and long you can maintain temps. They should be even from what I've read. I'm still looking for ideas.
