Alright moving along. I used some of my smoke house allowance to pay for a few extra hours of babysitting so I could get some work done. Bobank the bowed up area I referred to wasn't too warped. It was more just because the 5/16" paneling I used for my roof I had originally installed using 1" pin nails because I had ran out of 2" finishing nails. I got some more and redid the roof. Should be pretty solid but once I put some heat in the house I will evaluate. I ordered and received my burner in the mail. Northern Tools 3 Propane Burner that's favored by many on this site. (Oh by the way that was my first time in Northern Tools I think I am hooked now). Well here is some progress.
Got the 4" smoke stack installed. A little unsure about using the metal ducting tape when my temps get up. Anyone have any feedback?
Hooked up the mailbox on the side for my AMNPS. Routed in using 3" aluminum elbows. Tip: When buying a hole saw I would recommend going 1/4" larger than the hole you are cutting to give you a little bit of play. 1/4" may seem like a lot but spread out along the entire circumference and you should be good to go. The mailbox is an all steel box from Lowes.
AMNPS inside the mailbox. I bought the 5x8 and I also bought the scratched and dented one and couldn't find anything wrong with it and it was like $15 cheaper lol.
You probably can't see it but I ran a little cd smoke through. I am still working out the kinks with airflow but I did buy a couple 6"x6" vents. More to come...stay smokey my friends!
