I'm building a rf smoker very similar to uncle beefs. Do I need to put a damper in between the firebox and cooker, or will the dampers in the firebox be sufficient to control temperature.
You do not need to put a damper between the firebox and chamber. My Lang has no baffle there and works fine.
I have thought about building a reverse flow with a vertical warming cabinet/smoker over the firebox and using a baffle between the the firebox and chamber and a couple more from firebox to cabinet but haven't really figured it out yet. My idea was I could shut off the main chamber and use the cabinet to do small smokes in but I honestly don't know if it would work correctly
