Did a trial burn (k charcoal) on the lower firepit barrel with stovepipes over the twin dampers to experiment on actual cumbustion and air volume requirements. The 2" pipe will not be enough by itself. Noted when shutting down one damper... the shut down stack will reverse and become an unexpected air intake... will need to add a 7" butterfly on opposite side for supplemental air intake. Between the two intakes... bingo. The temp and smoke rising out of the stacks were less than "2 seconds to ouch" hot.
Will be adding the connecting pipes today... hopefully for an baptism by fatty on Wednesday.... with a porkloin on Saturday.
If there are demands for pics... you have been warned in advance... too farkin' ugly... hide the women and children.
If it is that ugly...put it in the Fark Thread....but post pics somewhere. Gotta see it now but I'll hide the kids and animals.
