Ok..after the smoker completion My patio RF looks decent Using the smoker calculator all seems well The smoker's draft seems very good BUT the smoke is heavy and white/grey Very strong smell of smoke Water(black) dripping from the smoke chamber door There can only be several problems: Damp fuel(my first villian-wasn't happy with the dryness of the hickory. Had a damp feel and saw some bubbling on logs put into the fire pit. That will be checked out today once I acquire more wood.
Cook chamber-round 24" dia x 29" length for 13113 cubic in
Fire box-round 16" dia x 22" for 4423 cu inches (Recom is 4371 cu in)
Chimney size 3" round pipe----31.3 inches recom for a volume of 221.16 cu inches I have 32"
Firebox to cook chamber opening---recom opening is 35.39 cu in I have 36 cu inches (6 x 6)
Area below baffle is 3.5 " off bottom
Opening at end of baffle into cook chamber is approx 3.5 "
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
