Looking very sexy so far. That solid steel skin must be heavy! I'm diggin' the build. I may have overlooked it but how long is your chamber and what is the diameter? My Jambo clone was built 6' w/ 28" diameter--the smoke stack on it is 36" and 6" in diameter if I'm not mistaken..which is actually working out perfect. We have two round inlets in the fb door about 6" in diameter. The flow is great. If your dimensions are similar, I'd say your stack would be fine in this neighborhood. It's been awhile since we cut and measured everything. We used a calculator to get everything to the right size (except the fb--we made ours a little bigger than recommended--which is okay since we didn't go smaller).

So far, I'm liking yours much more than mine but the link of our semi finished build is in my sig if you want to look. I included a lot of the data in the thread if it'll help close any gaps for you.

I am seriously thinking about starting on the replacement firebox for mine thanks to you and TWSSB. Your both a bad influence on me. My wife will know where I am for hours at a time and won't be out spending money at the local man malls (Cabala's/Fleet Farm). It's all on you both. Seriously though, killer job on the smoker. It would be great to meet up at a comp sometime and snag a photo of them all together.

Thanks for the compliments. I did follow ur build. Its pretty sweet.

The chamber is 26" x 5'. The stack is 5". It draws real well. With the stack flapper wide open the doors don't leak smoke.

Muscrat fantastic job on this build, I just read everything from start to finish and I'm in awe... you do great work! I am not mechanically inclined in the slightest but really appreciate people who have the skill set to build things from scratch. Great work brother, this is amazing!
