Double Barrel Smoker
Question: Are the double pipes necessary coming out of the bottom barrel?

The short answer is yes... will be necessary for the required draft and heat.
Found that out the hard way.

Barrel burn-out

Initial build

Grease drain mod

I only have a single on mine. I have no problem with draft at all, but it is hotter on one end. A double tube setup would remedy that.
The biggest thing to remember, is that they are fuel HOGS!! plan on using wood, and do a bunch of tests to figure yours out.
I absolutely love mine, but if I made another one it would have 2 tubes connecting the barrels.

I put 2, 6" pipes from the bottom to the top, both have dampers in them, and 1, 6" stack out of the top, which also has a damper. I've not had any problems with hot or cold spots. I also bought [2] Vogelzang kits, so that I could put a fire door on either side of the burn barrel, this way no matter which way the wind is blowing I can open the door to catch some extra draft and get it up to temp. quicker.
