Really nice pits, and obviously beautiful work! I'm curious why you don't do reverse flow?

Also, is the need to fold the stack down so they will fit in a garage?

I agree with the reverse flow. Last two I built have been reverse flow and think it is the way to go!

Not a reserve flow fan, traditional with tuning plates works great and can have different heat zones.

I prefer traditional over reverse flow. Maybe itís just me, but I like running different temps from end to end. That way I have a choice if I need to speed things up, or slow things down. It sure helps when youíre cooking different meats and need higher heat for one, but you donít want that heat for the other.

Yes Sir, we build reverse flow! These are just the last few that we've done. And yes, its so they can fit in garage / enclosed trailer

We sure do! We can make and do make just about what ever ya want!

We do build Reverse Flow, but personally I prefer traditional offset. After several years of cooking on a reverse flow i've found traditional offset produces a better quality product with a more defined smoke flavor. I'll post up some of the reverse flows we have done!

Thanks guys! I appreciate it!

Flash sells to a lot of people. They want something others don't have, thus propelling the others to want to one up their buddies. Pretty smart.

Those are some great looking pits. Went to yalls website, I have to say those pits are very reasonably priced in comparison to others on the market. What’s the thickness on the pellet smoker y’all make?

On the 18" pits, are they 3/8 or 1/4? Do you have any with a grill built in to the firebox? What's the wait time on a pit that size?
