    My friend gave me a stainless steel cooler. The dimensions are 64in high 241/2 wide and 56in long. I was going to build a firebox out of concrete block and line it with fire brick. How far away should I put the firebox away from the smoker. What dimension of pipe and how long should it be. If someone else has a better idea for a firebox I would welcome it. The reason I say that is where I'm putting the smoker is temporaly until I move some dirt around. I want to get the smoker started asap so I can start smoking away. Thanks for all the input

    Nice sounding project.
    I think those answers depend on if your hot or cold smoking. To far away and hot smoking will be a challange, to close and cold smoking ...blah blah you get the picture.
    Sorry for more questions then answers.
    Several posters will show up soon that are more help then I.
    Post pics, this sounds good.
