Reverse Flow - Why is it so terrific?
Q. The website references the importance of the "reverse flow" feature. What does it mean? What is the advantage?
A.When it comes to Off-Set Firebox BBQ smokers cookers we are the originators of the reverse flow, offset-fire-box design. All of our smoker cooker models are built with the reverse flow design and we believe that all of our cookers have ALWAYS cooked better because of this reverse flow design.
What the reverse flow design does is:
the heat drafts from the firebox into the cooking cylinder and draws down under a baffled-flue to the end, then it reverses flow (thus the nick name reverse-flow) and drafts back over the top of the heated baffle-flue.
Reverse Flow Heat Baffle. This heated baffle or flue is designed; in our cooker, as a grease and water tight griddle or pan. The cooking racks are placed on top of griddle. The heat is used twice in our reverse flow system, and in a Lang BBQ Smoker, the reverse flow baffle plate is fat searing on an all- welded griddle, sizzling and searing food to perfection with flavor and moisture beyond compare. "As the meat cooks" the fat renders out. It sears and sizzles on a hot clean griddle, thus pure magic.
Championship results. The meat stays moist, becomes tender and is flavorful beyond compare. And it's less filling. What a winning combination.
We have continued to perfect that reverse flow, offset fire box design offer demonstrations at festivals, bbq cooking classes at our farmhouse with Chef Paul Kirk, and online tips to help you start a fire, utilize the reverse flow and cook with clean heat!
