    I'm wanting to build a charcoal box for my offset smoker. Would it be beneficial for me to put some sort of pipe in the middle for the charcoal to burn more evenly?

    Not sure I understand your "pipe" concept, so I have no answer for you?

    I hate to guide you to a link, but this one will bring up a wealth of charcoal basket info:

    You should see lots of different ways that other folks have tackled your current problem. If nothing else, you should get some ideas?

    A general location in your profile will give folks an idea of your climate and elevation in case you have questions in the future.

    Also, take a minute to drop by the Roll Call forum and introduce yourself so we can give you a hearty SMF welcome!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I'm in middle Tennessee and what I'm trying to go for is more even burn from the charcoal from the inside out. I was thinking of using a 4' pipe of some sort drilled out for air to get in.
