Considerations for building chimney in a shed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm still trying to figure out proper storage for my smoker.  I'm probably going to get a plastic shed (Lifetime, Suncast etc) and would like to build a chimney.  What are the design considerations?

 

For example, I assume the chimney vent needs to be above the smoker.  I'd like the chimney to be removable so I can close up the window in the winter.  What about heat concerns (i.e. plastic melting)?  How do I make sure the connection from the chimney to the smoker is removeable but at the same time sealed off so smoke doesnt go into the shed and smoke up my stored goods?  Or is it inevitable that my shed will smell like a smoke house?  Thanks.

Run the chimney out the building horizontal and down hill just a tad....... so the condensate does not drip back into the smoker... The shorter the better.....

So position the smoker to the side of the window vs directly below it, then run the chimney horizontal a bit (maybe sloping down), and then straight up out the window???  How far would it need to be from the window to not blacken up the shed over time?

Don't run the exhaust vertical.... it will collect water...
