I posted this in the UDS category but it has evolved a little. I still need plenty advice as the build is still in the early stages of development.
It was going to be a vertical smoker with a small footprint for easy storage with the fire in a basket at the bottom. It has since been suggested on another forum that I mount it horizontally and just keep the fire at one end. I then had the thought of building a divider to help even out the heat at the food end. The thing I like about the horizontal design is that I can use it as a big grill or maybe make a rotisserie mod if I fancy it. I did this quick visualisation and would like some feedback. I think the chimney is too large for a start! Was thinking of a ball valve for the intake. What size do you think I need? Do you think the divider will make any difference?
Thanks in advance!
Here are the pics and the visualisation:
