Dose Size Fire Basket Matter

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Dose the size of the fire basket matter compared to the size of fire box   lone-short-tall or wide? I have a Old Country Pecos and I was thinking of making the basket where it would slide out the side of the fire box when I need to take it out. Any and all advice is appreciated.

Yes.... make it as big as is practical...

Ray..... also you need to stop with these "one sentence" questions.... Post pictures of the smoker.... describe in detail what you are trying to achieve... what you have tried..... what you think may be wrong, with pictures..... and maybe what you have found out in reading others threads..... You need to help our members in this process.... they all love to give opinions but need something to chew on.....

In your above question, dimensions of the FB and CC and pics would help... what you have tried... what's available to you to use..... what others have done, (in your research)....

Ray, morning..... Lower the expanded metal grate to where the RED line is.... or close to it... That should work for the time being, to test the smoker.. use charcoal and lump hardwoods for your fire...

then you might consider dual air inlets by adding a plate to one of the pie vents.....
