    Uphill Smoke??

    RE smokers, Ben Lang recommends having the opposite end of the firebox be slightly higher than the firebox end so the smoke/heat has to “travel uphill.” That seemed odd to me....anyone know why that would help??

    Heat rises? That's all I can think of.

      I guess it works better. It has to go back down hill to get out since it's reverse flow.

        Exactly. Also, where is the grease port located?

      Depends if it is standard or reverse flow. Standard you would do that to help it draw better but should not need it if the pit is designed correctly. Reverse flow you could do that to help even out temps end to end .
      End to end temps will vary depending on amount of wood/fire, air inlet opening and temp you are operating at.

        I cook level. No issues whatsoever.

          By the end of the cook I am usually a little bit tweaked. Might have something to do with the pile of cans next to the pit.
