Cook chamber volume * 0.022 = smoke stack volume.

131230 * 0.022 = 2887 cu in stack volume.

A 10 inch pipe 36 inches long should get you in the ballpark....

You are most welcome. I just started a 250 gallon reverse flow build myself. It looks like you will be done long before I am. :emoji_sunglasses:

Best of luck on your build.
