    Cool Q-engine for Germany

    Dear fellows,

    after a warm welcome I feel free to come up with what I plan and what I have so far. I hope you could prove my ideas right or wrong, so I get something out that is capable of making great Q.

    I spent months now reading and learning and hope I got my lessons well. But please feel free to me if not.
    The plan is to built a reverse flow smoker. Something in between patio sized or backyard you might say. I have a 24"pipe about 57" long. The wall is 0,47"... I have some steel wheels and some 3m² metal sheet.

    I am going to get all small parts laser cut from new material. So I'm open to a Lang model with the full length of 57" and square firebox, or a smaller size with about 15" firbox and 42" cooking chamber. Thats what I'm struggeling with ...

    So what I have is:

    What I planned with Autocad (for the small size) is:



    To make something like this:




    What do you think?

    I think you missed the glass holder on your CAD drawing.

    That looks like a really nice build to copy though...

    If it burns, I can cook with it.

    Yes the glas holder is missing. I cannot decide for the size. Bottle is better available, but a Maß (1ltr) more pleasant. ;-)

    Perhaps a 20ltr insulated ice chest would work better. You could just set your drink right in the ice.

    Just as well. the glass is too close to the hear anyway.

    What is the compartment under the main chamber?

    When designing your firebox, keep in mind that you will need enough room for logs that are large enough to sustain a clean burning fire.

    Also bear in mind that you will need enough free air space to prevent a jet flow through it.

    I don;t know as you need 57", but I tend to think that you will want more than 15"

    The glass holder is a gimmick for the pitmaster and only used when movingTurning/mopping food.

    The compartment I was said works good for keeping finished food warm. Don't know about temps right now.

    Yes the pipe I have is to short for my taste, but I got it cheap. I's prefer to have 24" for the fire and about 60" for the food. But I have to deal with what I got.
    SO how to share best?

    I think you're onto a great design. It is a nice size for portable home use. Do you have the design for the internal plate and drain?

    Somewhere I had a link to a reverse build, but seem to have placed it somewhere other than favorites. I'll look for it and post if I find it.

    Yep, have that. I will make the reverse plate at about 8"-9" with a gap of approximately 2"-3" at the left end. I hope for enough draft that way.
    On the other hand there is some space unter the grate for passing the smoke through.

    The major pity is, that it will become to small for a hog or german shepard. Just big enough for poodle or cat :-( (Kidding with the pets)
