I have been tracking down the materials to start building what I have had in my head for a while. I have most of the major components located and I will start gatherring them up when I get home. I work offshore (7days on, 7 days off). I know that sounds like I should have plenty of time to build this thing, but it don't always work out that way. I plan to start building this week home and I would like someone to check my numbers and plan and see what yall think. I have read through most of the builds here (all 11 pages) and I have gotten a bunch of great ideas. I will be working with a 28" daimeter tank. the overall length is 88". The data plate is gone, but I think it is somewhere between 200 and 250. This build will be similar to the 125 Bluffton Smoker did. I am planning on putting the firebox under the cook chamber some though. I calculated the volume and ran the numbers through the pit calculator and came up with these numbers. Cook Chamber Volume = 37500 cu in Firebox Volume = 14200 cu in 6" stack length = 26 in Firebox intake = 43 sq in (not sure on design yet) Firebox to CC = 113 sq in (my plans have it at 118) Under RF Plate = 164 sq in End of RF Plate = 164 sq in I drew out two views on draft paper we had at work. No fancy CAD system is available so that's all I have to work with. I like to draw things out and make sure of the measurements before I start cutting. I scanned them and have a PDF. I will try to attach them here if it will work. I can not get them to rotate and save on my computer so they are sideways. If someone can tell me how to fix that I will. Got the "Error Uploading Image" error. I'll try to figure that out. I think I got it, took screenshot and put it in paint, cleaned it up and saved as jpeg. The scanner pulled them in a little crooked, but you get the idea. Hopefully I won't build it with the lean to it.
