Hello Towtruck

That ans surprises me as a solution, but, guess I really got stuck now wanting more rack area to cook on specially briskits 10 hrs or more cooking and like today prepping ribs n butts for 5 hr cook

Trying ideas
Butt: cut up butt like it was country ribs, in pcs... marinate in lime.... cook 3hrs coated with pulverized habanero and salt, foil with frozen cranberry juice maybe some brown sugar

1 Baby Back: marinate w/ fresh juiced limes, cook w/ pepper, foil w/ apricot preserves OR tomato sauce and sage

2 St Louis: cook w/ h pepper, foil w/ pineapple and coconut puree

Feel like playing and almost never till now, wanted to cook salty sweet.... NOT candy sweet tho, more like kettle corn


Many yrs ago I squeezed some lime juice over a really good pc of pecan pie, tasty combination... Lime marinated meat+brown sugar
I know it was a song but wonder if the Lime would really go good w/ coconut and pineapple...... thoughts?

Your going to invest as much time re-making that smoker as building a new one. I would add a stack at the top of the chamber and simply plug the old one off for now. Try it with the stack at the top to see if that configuration lets the hot spot escape. If it does not work you only have a hole to plug.

I forget...Have you run this pit with the stack wide open and controlled the temps from the intake only to see if that lets things flow better and even out? If that has been done moving the stack is the next logical step.

Yep already control heat w/ stack open using intake only

BUT really WANTING bigger 20 x 42 INCH COOKING RACK


Investment, front, back, side plates and cover all flat



Has no-one else ever been dis-satisfied with a 16 inch rev flow, and wanted more rack space, wanted more space where most of the heat really is, at the top.....

Do you mean I'm uniquely the first?


adding 1.4 cu foot starting w/ vigorous flow, sound like it will work?

With the reverse design the heat should be fairly even left to right and top to bottom. That is the beauty of the rf design.

It's your pit so do what you want and let us know how it turns out.......could be a winner!!
