    It's going to be charcoal with a door in back, I Gutted it and re insulated with roxul .. Fire box is lined with stainless and everything I've made is stainless. . Still have some work to do but that's it so far

    Yes the door for the fire box is in the back. Worked out better that way. Here's a pic of it framed. Still have to make door. Fire box is all insulated also. Do any of you guys have suggestions on where to place exhaust? Top or back.. Also I'm planning on using a bbq guru but haven't got it yet and not sure of how intake vents will be just yet

  9. I would put it up high but in the back. Sometimes the cool outside air will cause the stack to rain. I don't want the black droppings on my food,

    Happy smoken.

    If you are planning on using a Guru, I think it would be better if you plumbed it low into the side of your fire box. That way your charcoal could be started on one end and burn through to the other end. If you plumb the Guru into the middle of the back you would be burning from the middle towards both ends. Plumb it low so that the air goes directly at or below your charcoal basket. Did that make any sense?
    Keep Smokin!!!
