Got a little more done tonight, it seems like the closer you get , the more little things start showing up that still need to be done... I was thinking back (on post 162) about the hole size and decided to go with 1.5" drain pipe for both the grease drain and the chamber drain. It would take a chickin leg to clog that up. Found out it was a bad idea to use beer for the "flow " test... Smells like crap when you grind on it.
Im gonna try to put front braces on it using the legs that was already on it from the last goround. The back legs will be done the same as the front leg mockup. Im thinking Im gonna drill holes in the legs to mimic the holes on the frame.
If I have enough metal left over from everything Im thinking adding a 3X2X2 basket right against the front of the smoker to haul wood in.
thanks for lookin
this is my only complaint on my RF pit I built, went with 3/4" because it was readily available for a short length of threaded pipe and ball valve at Home Depot and I didnt know any better, but it clogs too easy
its the one thing I feel I need to fix on there, but taking the time never takes priority and I have gotten pretty good with the coat hanger
Thanks for the tip there. Im sure I would have tacked on a coupling and the thermo end up tightening up upside down.... Are these stats necessary if you are planning on using something like a ET 733? Just curious .
