[ATTACHMENT=1541]20140630_124323.jpg (68k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT] THIS is the start of my smoker. I'm having a hard time deciding where the smoke stack should be placed. It will be on left side away from fire box, but I've seen on top of pit, at middle of pit at grill level on side of pit, or couple inches below grill on side of pit. Which position do you all think is better.

You need to decide if your designing a traditional off-set or a reverse flow. That will determine where your stack goes.

Thanks for replying, i was thinking of doing reverse flow, but have thoughts of it requiring more fuel to maintain the temp. So I decided on traditional. What is your opinion on ghis?

I have used the calculator which was very helpful. So I should use a 6 in diameter with 17 in long smoke stack, but don't want smoke in my face so I'm going with a 4 inch wide and 37 inch long if I remember correctly.
