Need help for a friend! Please review!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

A friend at work has built his own smoker.  He is having some issues getting it up to temp and I told him I knew right where to go to ask what he needs to do.

 

I guess you would call it a RF - someone can tell me if I posted this in the wrong section.

 

He was holding 225 the other night but couldn't get it above that - from looking at it and knowing what I know I think his exhaust in his cook chamber is too small.  I may be wrong but please look at my pitiful drawing below for what he has.

 

Is there a calculator for a build somewhere that I can refer him to?

 

Thanks in advance!

So after finding this it appears that there are many issues....
