  2. The smoke chamber is 55 gallon SS drum the SFB is a modified 30 gallon Air compressor tank with a loading door and a damper door.The chimney btween SFB and 55 is 5X10 X 4 inches deep,I have a 4"X12" steel stack but havent put it on the 55 yet as it is extremely heavy and I dont want it to distort the barrel's thin wall.....There is a 2 1/2" or so outlet on the side of the barrel that seems to be working ok so far I have done 5 cooks on this so far,Chix,Pizza,Short Ribs.

    Very nice.  Good recycle of parts.  How does the damper work on the SFB?
