post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm Rocky from upstate NY and I am very excited that such a forum like this exists. Having never used a smoker before, my decision to build my own double barrel smoker is quickly taking shape.

So far I've purchased...

2 55 gallon steel barrels
1 Vogelzang barrel kit
2 Vogelzang adapter kit
2 Additional 6" damper collars

Yet to purchase..

Wheels for the base
Grill Paint
Black Stove Pipe 6"
Chimney shantee
Grill rack
Cover for on top of flues for dripping
Grill Handle
Appropriate wood to burn

Will try to post some pics along the way..very new to this so I appreciate your input and patience with my questions.

Welcome, if you have never smoked, take the 5 day smoking e-course. It really helped me out a lot. Also I recommend buying jeff's naked rib rub. The e-course is free and will have a link to go purchase the rib rub. I've used it on Boston Butts and it is friggin awesome. Take some pics of the progress of the smoker too. Glad to have you. You will get alot of help!

Stove Pipe error???

Thanks for all the support and I look forward to the extensive wealth of knowledge that you all seem to have.

Well I guess I'll fire away with my first question so I appreicate any direction anyone can offer. Picked up some black stovepipe today at my local fireplace store. Ordered 2 12" and a 24" both 6" in diameter. It then occured to me that my damper collar is also 6" in diameter. Does this mean I would have to get smaller stove pipe for my flues? I planned on trimming down the stove pipe to about 4" in in length. Any ideas is greatly appreciated.
