this has been a slow-moving project since the heatwave has settled in, but will get back on it this winter. I'm still using my first pit that i built several yrs back, so no real hurry on the cook trailer

well, i just used the calculator and figured out i had designed fire box too small!!! wheewee, re-drew it and sent to cut man before it was too late where to buy some 5" exhaust pipe for chimney stack???
well, after using the calculator, ive found that original firebox was too small, so i re-drew it and sent out to buddy with the burn table, Wheeewee, glad i noticed before it was too late, original design was only 75 percent of minumum fire box size required,
Ive also made up my mind on building it reverse flow, I found some pics online of a jambo firebox to cookbox and noticed that it actually brings heat in above the meat. I thought about trying this, but i like the use of water in a reverse flow............... any opinions on the jambo design??????? after all it is the winningest pit out there!!
been real busy this summer with work, family vacation, and its just too darn hot to weld!!!! BUT, I DID finally find some 5" truck exhaust pipe, I bought it at perfection truck equipt in ok city, and only cost 35$$
probably gonna wait till fall to get back on the build, we are under severe drought and burn bann!!!
the long weekend allowed a lil time for working on the pit project, finished up fire box and cut in and mounted to smoke box, also fit and installed the RF plate with the drain coming out of bottom of cook chamber
