Thanks a lot guys, I attached a pic above of the inside of the fire barrel. It only shows the two intake pipes (I've since added two more on top) but you get the idea.
The bottom intake pipe draws air right the the bottom underneath the charcoal barrel (which sits up ontop of those bricks) and the othe three pipes feed air to the side of the basket starting from the bottom going up.
I guess I could have NOT put them vertically and tried to put them side by side around the barrel, but I was going for a monster smoker intake manifold look. It seems to work fine, in fact that barrel gets hotter than... well it gets hot!!
