So I'm attempting a smoker build and to say I'm not totally grasping the maths behind it would be an understatement.
The tank I'm using has an overall length of 33inches and a diameter of 18.5inches, if my math is correct it would be about 33 gallons and that's with allowing less volume because of the end tanks. Is this to small to make a smoker out of?
I was thinking of starting with the FB/CC half moon opening first so I could work out door placement from there. I've put in a FB dimension in Feldon's bbq calculator and it's given me a half moon opening size of 7.2 inches, now I might sound stupid here haha but do I mark a line from edge to edge that's 7.2inches long? Like this
Would anyone have an opinion of what FB dimensions I should use?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
