A couple of years ago, I welded up this reverse flow stick-burner. I had a blast researching the build, finding the scrap metal and building it. It worked really well and I used it a ton. Well, I have a local college student that is a friend of the family. He is really trying to learn to BBQ and is a great kid. Plus, he had a rough semester at school. So, I decided to give the smoker to him for Christmas. You should have seen the look on that kid's face when I told him that it was his! He has already hit me up to help cut some firewood.
