First build - Page 3

post #41 of 72
I thought about the extra drain at the bottom of the smoker too but it's just more work than necessary. What I do is Lift the front up on the smoker and let it drain out of the firebox.

It is RibWizzard who has a removable RF plate in one of his smokers. He mentions it in the thread discussion for my upcoming build (which is still on hold til probably after the first of the year).

Good luck with your build Brian... look forward to watching the progress!

Here is the removable reverse flow plate I made.

Sits higher at the firebox end,  I had to go with a removable one due to the propane burner I wanted acces to to clean.

Yep and you can always extend it with an adjustable mod.

Question about Chimney size, I know that the chimney should be about 5% of firebox volume. My firebox is 24x24x21 and that calls for ----- but I did a ash pan under the fire grate, so that measurement adds 4" to the firebox height (28x24x21). The question is, does the ash pan volume needed to be figured into the 5% for the chimney or not? Anyone      Thanks.

  PS. Merry Christmas and have a Happy and safe New Year's to all.

I would say YES.... we are talking about volumes of heated air to move... If  you tripled the size of the firebox the original stack would not move enough heat, as an example.....

I have to agree with Dave.  It is all about air volume.

Looks good so far. What did you use to make damper slide tracks? I was thinking about using flat bar for the outside with a small strip the same thickness as the slide plate under it. Yours look like angle though.

post #59 of 72
Looking good.
Rasimmo I used ¼" angle iron on mine. Just make sure it has some slop or it may be tough to slide when the firebox heats up.

I used 1" angle and trimmed it down to the size I need, it was free.
