Arrow Westernsmokers vertical reverse flow smoker build

Well I finally got to start on the first build for my Westernsmokers adventure. Me and the boy had to finish up a table this morning first, so I quickly put him to work. Everything has gone great so far, we did have a little curve with one weld with the new machine and we had also changed wire size. but soon after we were humming right a long again. I am very impressed with the plasma cutter I bought. Cuts through this stuff like butter. Here are the pics from this mornings go at it. We will be back out there this evening to do some more. Thanks for lookin and keep a eye out for more builds and products.

just getting started this morning. So the slave labor started early..lol

the beginning

first piece of the project is done...made short work of it with the plasma

some of the welds

this is the one we had a little curve on

so far so good...you can see the hole is very low for the smoke stack.

I don't have much of one. I change the dimensions at the last minute..I figured I didn't need of 5' smoker right now. So I went with just a four footer instead.

Looking good! I can put things together out of wood, but I've always admired someone who can weld a nice bead.

Nice work! Same mesh I have in a basket for my WSM. Only issue- might have to give it a shake on longer smokes as ash will get held up by the mesh a bit.

Then again...that's a BIG freakin' basket... sooo guess we'll see!

Ya I thought about that. But it will also keep the smaller pieces of some royal oak from falling through at the beginning. So I figured what the hay. On a side note I got your rub yesterday I'm dieing to try it out. It smells great

Well I was able to work on the smoker for a couple hours today...It seemed like I didn't get much done but sometimes it's the way it goes. This is the bottom part just about done. I will make the smoke channel up the sides tomorrow and cap the top of what you see here. The water pan will be towards the end of the build I think. It should hold about 6 gallons of water. Well here are the pics and thanks for lookin.

Hey Jerod,

Man that is really coming along. If I can see from the pics, from the bottom up, it looks like a slide out ash pan, the fire pan, and then the water pan framing...Man that is some good looking fabrication. Points on a reload!
