Hey guys, i am new to the forum, but not to smoking. Up until now, i have borrowed pits when i had to smoke large amounts of food, but it is now time for me to build my own. I just picked up a 37in round x 82in long x 7/16in thick tube a guy was selling on craigslist for $100. I also was given a trailer that is 12ft long by 6 1/2 ft wide that needs some new angle iron and axes, but over all in good shape. Now i have an idea on how this rig is gonna be set up, but i have a question on a side vertical smoker. Now looking at the design i want, getting smoke and heat to the vertical smoker is an issue. Being it is on the reverse side of the firebox, i know i cannot open up the wall between the vertical smoker and the smoking chamber or this would defeat the purpose of an RF smoker. I do not want the vertical above the firebox because of weight and balance. My idea is to get another smaller steel tube or two (im thinking 4-6 in) and run it from the firebox, underneath the RF plate and into the vertical smoker. My question is do you guys think this will work? I am pressed to get this done pretty quick, i have a cookoff i am in in April and would need to season the pit before it's debut. Any input from all you pitmasters would help!
