symonds, evening..... Pics don't show up.... maybe cause you are new here and our computer "COP" has put your pics in limbo for awhile.... That helps stop spammers... Sorry....... I'm interested in seeing the RF plate.... should be aces....... Dave
Hey, congrats....... Pics worked and all looks good..... Nice crease in the RF plate.... I like the looks of a creased RF plate.... seems professional.... now a tack weld or 6, after the drain and dam at the end of the Rf plate, and you are getting close... I think the stove is going to work just perfect.... looks really good.... big door for adding wood and cleaning ash... what else you need.... great top to warm the splits or set a warming box....
One thing I noticed, we are alot alike..... I can't figure how to change the date in my camera either... .... I ain't smart enough to work through all those steps.... or find them...

Some more experienced folks will chime in no doubt, but you still need a decent length to create good draw, so whatever diameter and length gets you the desired volume. I think it's somewhere around 30-40" long or thereabouts, but someone please correct me.
• A chimney that is too short may produce insufficient draft (drawing of air). A chimney that is too long may cause the air to cool before it exits, reducing effective draft and worse, dripping of exhaust materials onto food!
• Many horizontal smokers have an exhaust between 30-40 inches in length, but there is no hard and fast formula.
• If you are building a horizontal smoker with a vertical cooking cabinet, realize that the cabinet partly acts as an exhaust, thus you may greatly shorten the chimney.
Munxcub...... Well there you go.... You have been correct all along.... Don't you hate it when you think you "may" be incorrect but are really correct.... how can you defend yourself ?????
