    V shaped fire management basket

    I believe the advantage to a V basket is concentrated coals to the specific area due to the V shape rather than flat bottom and taking coals back into the middle to keep the coals centered so to speak. I believe it would be more fuel efficient as well. My theory that is hahahaha

    Heat shield/deflector in offset

    I know you mentioned having a real hot zone on the side closest to the fire box..why not turn that basket and maybe shorten it so its not as long near the opening from fire box to cook chamber? Just a thought while looking at your set up...im a newbie so what do I know Hahahaha just a thoufht..

    Heat shield/deflector in offset

    Ya I like that and I think for us with flat bottom fire boxes its vital to have something to concentrate the coal bed rather than constantly raking coals back into the middle etc..they are sold out of those baskets online and he said hopefully end of the week but still nothing. I may have...

    Heat shield/deflector in offset

    Here is a picture of how the stack is mounted which I see some like this but not many. The extruded stack style I see is usually not as extended in some other smokers I've seen.

    Heat shield/deflector in offset

    Thanks Dave and I didn't really have a problem holding temp just as long as I had decent coal bed and the dampers about 1/4 to half open depending on what temp I wanted but when my coal bed was crap spreading all flat in the bottom then needing to rake back in the middle. I'm having faith on...

    Heat shield/deflector in offset

    And when my damper is open as u see in the picture should I adjust my stack damper according to how open my FB door is or should i just leave the stack wide open all the time and just adjust FB damper ?

    Heat shield/deflector in offset

    Ya I'm going to have a my friends metal fabricator add an upper inlet like you mentioned. The rectangular configuration seems more practical since my FB is square and only about 4 inches of space available to do anything

    Heat shield/deflector in offset

    Preserving smoker over time

    Hey I wanted to get some thoughts on what people do to preserve the exterior of your smoker. I see if you have surface rust some suggest sand with 50 to 80 grit then clean surface with like a mineral spirit for a clean surface area then apply high heat paint and call it a day or some apply...
