Cowgirl has led me to the light but I had the same questions that I see here - how do I make one?  Anyway - here's a link to the one I made with a bill of materials so you can make one too!

 

Completely inspired by Cowgirl!!!!

The flat piece of 2' plastic you are looking for is called a plug.  It is a thin pice of plastic that is rimmed and glues into the PVC.  it is the same diamater as the outside thickness of the pipe but fits inside, so you will need to trim the outer flange down a bit sp you just have the inside diamater left.  very smart idea, I love it.

Sounds like that would work!  I just used some plastic material I had on hand and cut it out with my drill press and a hole bit..then sanded the edges to fit tight.

They are easy to put together, and fun to use!

Cowgirl,

I think it should be mentioned that the "Fatty Piston" is also a handy thing to keep around your smoker, for when the hordes of hungry people around your smoker get out-a-hand!
