Should have made it BIGGER !

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I finished this build a while ago and the smoker works amazing (thanks Dave, Rib Wizard & Squibb) unfortunately I want more cooking room. So, you math wizards out there, how do I figure this out?

 

1. I want to remove the door and build a box on top of it, (see attached internet photo).

 

2. I'm guessing I will have to change the size of the air inlets and possibly make the stack bigger or longer. If so, how do I calculate this?

 

3. Will I have to relocate the stack to the side of the new box or can I leave it where its at?

Ribwizzard expanded one of his smokers....   You might think of this method.....  Then see if it works, and adjust as needed....

Hey I like your Idea,  First Figure the the overall new Cu, In, of the CC then we can start sizing everything else.

You will need to move the stack  Think about a plenum style

Bazza has you covered....    You may not have to do anything after you section the smoker...  fire it up.... check it out before planning size changes....

I will take some measurements and try and post them this weekend, any ideas on average height between shelves? I want them high enough so I don't have to re-modify this thing again HAHA !

Build in multiple shelf supports and just move the shelves as needed...   Just like your kitchen oven.....

Dave,

 

Great idea, that's what I love about this forum. People come up with the things you either over look or don't think about.
