need advice on my build
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
I would be worried about the firebox pipe, I honestly don't think you will get much heat through there for that chamber.
But as far as the stack goes, I always suggest to folks to drop it an inch or two if coming from the top, you can always use an adjustable piece of flashing inside if you want to drop it further.
Also 4" seems small can you go 5"?
Wait for Ribwhizzard to chime in, the man knows his stuff!
For the exhaust stack ive always tended to have a better when the stack is flush with inside when mounting to the top or back. When mounting on the side i always build an angled box for it and in my cases it helpw with draft cause its not having to make a 90 degree turn from inside pit to up the stack.
from the looks of your chamber I wiould go 5", but before you go any further, have you referred to the pit calculator? There's a link in my signature, I would do your calculations and post them here for some advice before you go any further, more pics too, especially of that firebox.
