I'd like to see him overlap the tanks a bit more, on a 24" diameter cooking chamber. At least another inch. Give him a little more room to dish down the reverse flow plate. Ive been over lapping them about a third, .....now this reduces the room between the grate and reverse flow plate, but they have been breathing and cooking good and it gives me room for the "
As far as the height of the first cooking grate, Ive been installing mine dead center of the chamber to get the most sq inches of surface area...because I like to do ribs. If your more into roasts or birds . you might want to go lower so as to have more room between racks. But even then, if you actually measure a 12 lb bird or 8 lb but, you really don't need as much height as most people think..
so, let me post a question ....I think its Jambo that has the firebox to cook chamber opening above the lower grate, Ive been contemplating this lately.does anybody have any thoughts on that???.. I'm thinking of doing one as an experiment. but a little differently than the way he does it.
