AB Canuck, It works really well :) Almost a set it, forget it and once you get it dialled in. If you click on the picture it will take you to my photobucket and there are some pictures of tasty food, I just cooked on it lol.

So that ball valve is all that's needed to regulate temps? It's an air flow regulator I assume

That is correct. The large ball valve is to control temperature via air control and the smaller one on the side of the smoker is the drain.

Oh I didn't even notice a smaller one. Drain for grease or the water pan? I was just studying the smokerplans picture a bit more. Since I'd be potentially adding it to my existing smoker, I won't worry about that, just adding it on.

Drain is for grease. I can take more pictures if you need some, just let me know of what.

My only question for design purposes would be how to make the gravity fed chamber. Is it angled for pellet drop or just rectangular? And is the air valve at the same level of the grate or above or below? What about the exiting chamber for smoke?

Is the airflow ball valve 2" size pretty standard for airflow?
