Feldon calculated 175 gallon reverse flow.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Found this fireplace insert for sale. The best part about it, in 1980-82 I was welding for the company that made these inserts. Added 10" to the back to increase the volume required for the 175 gallon cooking chamber.



A floor with a valley formed to direct the rendering through a tube out the far end of the cooking chamber was constructed from stainless steel.


Two locations are used for the wheels. A rear location for tongue wait with a wide base for towing, and a center location for balance with a narrow base so I could fit it through the gate at home.
The first smoke was this stuffed 90 pounder. At 9 hours, it was done 6 hours earlier than expected. It was 6 am and people weren't showing up until noon.

I like the ramp effect, smoke already heading in the right direction when it gets to the CC. Very cool design! Thumbs Up
