Newbie with a few questions.
This is a great forum and I'm learning a lot.
I want to mod my OKJ for better performance. It is a horizontal 40x20 with side firebox.
Y'all know the look.
I want to change the location of the chimney. I want it to come out on the side still, but lower down by the grate.
Would I be okay to leave it 3.25 inside diameter or should i change the size (diameter)?
It is a rather sharp 90 elbow just as it comes out. Should I change that to 2 - 45s instead of the 90? to smooth the flow.
I want to add some tuning plates. Is there a optimal distance to keep between them and the grate?
The firebox to smoker opening is a bit big as compared to what the calculator suggests. I installed a deflector to get the heat under the grate. But was wondering if the opening location is correct. It is 3.5 inches up from the bottom of the smoker bottom. Should I lower the firebox and the opening some?
Thanks for the help.
