Spacing between the smoker and the Rib warmer

Postby Neckbone35 » May 19th, 2017, 12:41 pm

How much space, if any is required to prevent to much radiant heat?

Usually there's not a gap between them if you aren't adding a baffle from the FB. You will need to have some vents in the WC so you can let some heat out to regulate the temperature.

Would those vents exit in to the Cook Chamber or directly outside?

Yes sir the warming chamber and they would exit outside so you can dump some heat if you need to.

It's just an opening (round or square) in the top of the FB with a slide over it so it can be opened or closed from outside the pit. If I was putting a WC on my smoker I would have an opening from the CC and the FB and the cooking options would be endless. Check out Mack, it's at the top of the RF section and there's a lot of good pictures in there.

Welcome to the crew!

It looks like you are headed the right way.
This is the control between my FB and WC/VC when you do this the WC can also be a Vertical Cabinet because you can cook in it. My FB is 1/2" plate then I have 2" of 2000* insulation then the WC bottom. So only the heat I want goes through this opening. If I leave it closed the temperature never gets over 140* in the WC.

Just ideas not required.
