    Hey folks! I just joined and am still trying to figure the site out, but I will figure it out soon. Two percent rule: ya have to be 2% smarter than whatever you work with (I may never figure this site out LOL! I hail from Warner Robins ga and have been smoking meat for some time now. I have decided to get serious about it since I visited a completion cook off a few weeks ago. Not that I want to compete, just do better and learn more about all things "Q." I have an upright cylinder that is 5' tall and 2' in diameter that I have been using for a while when I do large amounts of meat. It works really well, but I want to go to the next level and put a gravity feed system on it. Of course I have not seen a gravity feed system on a cylinder, so I am in virgin territory. I will try to upload a pic of my smoker.[ATTACHMENT=1030]image.jpg (223k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]

    Thanks for the welcome Red. I have been wondering/working on my dilemma about adding gravity feed to my pit. I think I have some of it figured out; round tubbing for the charcoal shoot 6 inch ID and about three feet high attached to three inch tall box with a grate with rebar space about 3/4 of an inch on top of a 12x12x12 inch ash box with a door. Wish I had one of those programs other guys have to draw there builds out, but I just have to settle for an explanation.

    Any thoughts?

    Hey Red,

    Any thoughts on my cylinder problem?  Sure would be nice if I could get some help.  Kinda flying by the seat of my pants here.
