I like to use square tubing for the stand but a lot of guys use angle iron. Just be sure it's heavy enough to support all of the weight of the finished cooker.

On mine I put a shadow plate even with the top of the firebox opening and the baffle plate about an inch above that. It let me have my grates in the center of the cook chamber and about 4” between the grates and the baffle plate.

You can use the pit calculator to get the length of the stack, different diameters will change the length. I like to have the stack tall enough to keep the smoke out of my eyes but not too tall to go through the garage door. I mount the stack as high as possible on the CC and dropped in the CC just enough to get a good bead on it.

The 24'' length will be fine. There's only a few ways to remove the rust, sandblasting, some type of chemicals or a grinder and wire wheel, be sure to wear a dust mask and eye protection while using the wire wheel.
