Default 120 Gallon Reverse flow smoker build LOTS OF ?s &photos

My buddy and I have been working on this trailer for about a month or so you know on weekends and such. Here are some photos. We still have alot to do and alot of parts to gather. End goal is mid Feb. We have our fire box, the tank, and the trailer. Hope you like it. We our building it all with mostly home owner tools, a small welder, a 35$ grinder, a torch, and a big hammer.

a few questions? We plan on putting a drain in the bottom pan, Do we put it in the back of the tank by the fire box, or in the front? Also how high from the bottom of the tank does the plate need to be? on how high from the plate can does the rack need to be?

Could not add photos so here is a link to my facebook page.

The food will taste so much better coming off of a pit that you built yourself. It's looking good. Looks like you will have it knocked out in no time. Nice job!

Go to the smoke ring forums and look under the stickies in the cooker section. They have excel sheets that show calculations for that kinda stuff. Also if you have any questions ask a guy named k.a.m. He is a genius.

Put the drain in the front so you can use your jack to lower the front to drain all the liquid.

That's impressive. I bet it's tough to cut a straight line with a grinder. On my smokers the drain is on the opposite end from the firebox, or you could say it's located closer to the trailer tongue. Like MAP said.
