I am curious if anyone has tried a hybrid design that combines an offset with a texas style offset with a reverse flow.
I really like this texas style smoker

I wrote the company and asked how much they would charge to modify the plans and got this response
Unfortunately I dont really understand what he is saying. (This is why I wanted to buy the plans).Howdy!
Unfortunately we are not able to modify the plans at this time.
All of our plans can be made "texas style" by relocating the smoke stack and eliminating the baffle plate.
none of the engineering will change.
You will need to change some of the measurements to allow for your changes to steel thickness though.
My understanding in an offset is that you want the smoke/heat to go straight up and across.
But in a reverse flow you want it to be deflected down and then back up in the other direction to exit in the firebox side exhaust.
You guys will know a lot more about about smokers then I ever will so with this being my first slow cooker (to build and to run) I need all the help I can get. I am a decent welder and have access to a cnc table
