    This is my idea I don't have the top on but you can get the idea
  9. Hello Abucks, welcome to the site, Pretty neat looking build you have going. You said something about a damper in your stack, I have one but its only to keep out rain and bugs, I like my stack free flowing while I am smoking, controlling the heat and air flow with the dampers on the FB.
