If your steel is not thick enough to hold the heat in your pit, with a pit of that length no matter what you do with a firebox on the far end of it you will always have heat fall off. Have you tried insulating the pit somehow? I don't really know what to tell you. Sorry.

ur right in a away . i am able to use it i just want to get my temps even out. i have had some problems with heat flow.but slowly getting them work out. i cooked a 100# pig. i just had to keep spinng it.. i did not try insulating the pit. i think i am going to build a new firebox and make it a reverse flow. i just need to figure out the rite size and how big to make the opening from the box to the cooker
