Now for the stack.
I got a 24" piece of 8" pipe to use. I know this isn't long enough. I wanted it to not be sticking up really high if I try to move it into my low garage. So to get the right height on the stack I can slide a piece of 8" stove pipe down inside the pipe welded to the CC. This also makes it nice to find the height needed for a good draft.
Next I made the fire box door.
At this point I am really wanting to get some smoke rolling. I welded a piece of 1/4" plate on the end of the fire box before the wedding. I found this old wheel was the perfect diameter for the door. It is nice having a guide when free hand cutting with an acetylene torch. I found a lot of "guides" around the house while doing this build.
Trimmed the door and added a damper.
Now for a test fire. My freind gave me some grates out of his outdoor wood burner that burnt out. I found a good use for propane. It's good to use with a weed burner to start a fire in your smoker!!
Hot dogs anyone? We were hungry.
The smoke rolled beautifully.
