That's right, you did read correctly. A muffler.
This ain't your regular muffler however, this puppy came off a million dollar 750kw generator!
40" in diameter and 8 feet long build from 1/8" thick stainless. Yea baby.
I've seen so many wonderful and ingenious builds on this forum that I would like to draw upon your collective wisdom
to help me make this a success if not an adventure.
Here are a couple of pictures of this monster and an idea or two that have been dancing around in my head.
Idea number one: Vertical inline.
Stand this monster on end, use one flange opening as the firebox air intake, use the other flange opening as the chimney outlet.
Each opening is 13-1/2 inches in diameter.
I would cut out bottom section with the flange to make a door with built in round air inlet.
Cut a couple of doors above that to place shelves for food.
Weld in a firebox to smoke chamber separator.
Attach a chimey to the top flange with a 90 degree elbow.
Seems like a simple enough plan.
I'm looking for any suggestions.
