What size stack?

Post by Ndaniels » January 31st, 2018, 1:14 am

Alright I finally got my firebox measurements down and just got to get the metal but I have been a lot of chimney questions. And I want to make sure I get it right the first time. Am I close on the measurements? It’s a 300 gallon smoker. Thanks for any input!!

FB is a little small . Shoot for ~105%. The stack volume will change with FB size.


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

I will bump the fire box to 30 inches all the way around to make it 119%. Which will make the chimney length 35.10 inches weird that it makes it shorter.
