I'm trying to determine the benefit / need for a damper between the firebox and smoking chamber. I've seen them built both ways, so....
I am building a smoker now, and wanted to get some advice before I get past that stage. Mine will be a under fire box? where my firebox is a pair of propane tanks welded together, underneath a large compressor tank, running 2 - 4" pipes between, and having a dispersing plate in the bottom of the smoking chamber to even out the heat coming up.
Thanks in advance.
