Any experience with this anyone?
Here's a shot of what I have. It's 2" black pipe.
As you can see in the pic, I already have condensate building up on the inside of the vent... Not worried, just curious.
Do you have a little rise to the lateral pipe? I just installed a propane stove in my house and the vent had to have a 3/8 inch per foot rise. I know this probably means nothing but it was for condensation to not develop from what I read. Dave Omak is the man. Shoot him a PM.
Understand more now. Guess I was thinking more about my own smoker,and the size I have. I had same issues and had to install larger exhaust. Maybe you could drill a hole in the 90° ell on the bottom, would drain any moisture. (if any) Just thinking witch most of the time gets me in trouble. CF
I had the straight pipe at first and was going to run with it, but when I get a good north wind, it tends to stifle my progress. So as an experiment I got the 90 and the vent stack, working better now. I can get rid of the 90, and just add the vent cover to the horizontal pipe, still a wind break. Still plenty of north wind season for me to experiment with, not to mention, a 6" piece of pipe isn't too much to replace each season if needed...
Also, the horizontal pipe does tilt toward the interior of the smoke house. Better inside than on the concrete drive.
