Could use your help from the group.
Picked up this smoker for what I think was a good deal but it needs some modifications. It is an RF but the under sized FB sits right below the CC. The bottom is rusted out a bit so I was going to build a new FB and replace the bottom of the chamber. My question is whether it is ok to keep the FB in the same location or is it important enough for me to try to totally re-mount the smoker on the trailer and install the FB on the end. I think there is room to cut it in below the baffle control (seen in the third pic).
For information, the CC is 36" in diameter and 68" in length. Should accommodate a whole pig. I have about 4 weeks for the mods but want to plan it well first. Any help would be appreciated.
