12" Offset or reverse flow worth it?

Postby wvuarmyeng » Sun Nov 12, 2017 6:57 pm

I have some 12" .375 wall pipe I got from a jib. Think 12" is top small for an offset or reverse flow? I have one length about 4' and hopefully they found the second one during clean up. Is it worth making one out of this or should a go with a different plan. Maybe a verticle?

I'd say as a novelty it would be really cool to see a small offset. I do remember a video somewhere a little offset was made that could hold one fatty - fully functional but strictly for grins and giggles. I could see a small 12" one being perfect for an appetizer cook (ABT's, couple of sausages, etc.) where you didn't want to fire up the big boy but wanted some smoke. Yes, other cookers would do the same but how cool it would be to have a mini offset in your arsenal.

I so go for it.... or send me the pipe. :thap:
