as far as my understanding goes you want the smoke on the meat, no doubt... but i DONT think you want it to stagnate there, (that's why ya gotta ALWAYS leave the exhaust open full, so that you dont choke the meat with smoke cuz afterall tasting the meat is a HUGE part ya dont only want the smoke
Good points, I think I can achieve my design now with a removable metal plate that is only in when vertical chamber is closed and the right spoke stack is open. I wanted to put a grill above the firebox...so if I moved the vertical over to the right then I lose that option...hmmmmm. I am leaning to moving it to the right now.....now I have to figure out how to counter balance with all that weight on the right if I do that.
Thanks for your input mmmmeat!
