Hello! I am Derek Hartman a retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer who resides in Vinton, Ohio and is a competition KCBS pit master for Backwoods Grillin'. We have been using two Jim Bowie Green Mountain Pellet Grills for the past two years. Recently I started building a stick burner out of a 275 gallon fuel oil tank. I'm curious to know what size of stack I should mount on the smoker. This is not a RF cooker and stack will be mounted on opposite end of Firebox that I also need to build as well. Here is the current state of my smoker. If you can provide firebox size also would greatly appreciate that as well.

Welcome to the forum!

Glad to have you with us!

Plenty of builders on here to help with your question.

I'm just not one of them.
