    Firebox Help

    6" from the bottom of the smoke chamber to the reverse flow plate and at least 6" from the reverse flow plate to the first grill is the rule I follow. I divided my 4" stacks by two to shorten them up a bit and installed them at grate height as well. How about some pctures as you move forward?

    240 gal horizontal direct heat smoker help needed?

    Your pics show as being deleted? What size firebox do you have? If the firebox is 1/3 the size of the smoke chamber you will need at least 5  4" intakes at the firebox and 39" of 6" exhaust stacks. This is assuming a lot so more info is needed on your dimensions.

    My New Braunfels project

    Looks like you are on your way. I reduced the firebox to cook chamber opening by 50% and cooked 2 fatties with perfect temps this past Wednesday. It cooked for 4 hours on 8lbs of lump. Yours is looking real good.

    Hybrid smoker, first build.

    I kinda half a$$ mocked it up. I ended up tacking some temporary butt weld carbon hinges to the doors as I had so much welding to do on the pit. Glad I did, one door fits so bad after the rack guides and end caps were welded I will have to remove them to get them straight. It would be cool to be...

    Hybrid smoker, first build.

    Thanks again, my stacks are what the calculator called for just cut in two.I just didn't really want to look like I have a flare stack on top of my smoker. The stacks will only be open at one end at a time depending how I am cooking. I open the opposite end from the fire box and I can cook...
