So how did the burn go? Did you get a chance to get any temp readings?

I have not gotten any temp readings yet. Basically just burning the oils and junk off yesterday. It does draft very well and from hand touch method it felt good. Be Monday before I get to finish up on it. Spending today with kids shooting people in the face with paintballs.

I will have a table in front of door opening before it done this weekend.

Next up will be a Argentine style grill for cooking up some burgers and jitas between briskets and pork butts. Also going to plumb in propane to assist lighting the smoker and said grill. May put a deep fryer/boiler setup on it too, still thinking about that part.

Piece of semi-rough cedar for a handle between horse shoes I'm thinking.

I lit fire in it yesterday at 5ish. It's held 220-230 till right now at 7:30 pm. Loaded down with wood at midnight last night and never really paid it no attention till lunch today. It had dropped down to about 180. I'm impressed with it, never would have thought a load of wood could last 12 hours.

I was waiting on a phone call last night, for supper.

Good to hear it's holding heat well.

If possible could you show a picture of your bottom plate / reverse flow channel? Did you perforate it or just flat plate with a hole at one end? Thanks.

Water jets are pretty cool! Shop got one when I worked for Tote Sytems LLC. Cut glass smooth as a baby's bottom, as well as stainless plate. Cut a life sized rose out of 1/8" glass including stem and leaves. Even etched the veins in the leaves.
