Controlling heat

Post by Dross429 » February 24th, 2017, 11:11 am

I just had a tank added to my offset smoker. The original CC has a 4"steel pipe with 1" holes running through it, the pipe was extended into the new addition, with it being open at the end. How can I control the heat going into the new CC?

Can you post some pictures of your smoker and the inside of the FB and CC ? I'm not sure how big it is but a 4'' pipe doesn't allow much heat from the FB to the CC.

I would agree with BigT that pipe if that is all that moves the air through is not enough airflow. Post the dimensions of everything and I bet we can get you the help you need
