I built a clone a few years back. One thing you need to do is rotate the firebox grate 90 deg. When you shut things down and the fire goes out it is really hard to remove the grate because the hunks of charcoal stick down thru the bars and hang up. If you rotate the grate, this wont be a problem.

I really like the Superior stuff. The interior shots I have seen show an amazing level of craftsmanship.

I do like the clone builds, but am relegated to the mechanically declined forum.

When your building your clone are you looking at one or just going off what others have tried. After buying a stumps I could see that my clone drawings were WAY different than I thought for the chute and how it is attached to the cook chamber. Nice job so far on the build.

Have not gotten the insulation yet. Not sure what I will use.

I have researched through the web on them. Have had some help from another website that specializes in clones. And kinda going by the seat of my pants. Combining 2 different smokers into one. Hope it works!

I used "rock wool " insulation in mine. I think it is rated as good to 1000 deg.

Lookin good Micheal. When we built our cookers, I couldnt wait to start a fire in it. Then we got them done and we were nervous. When are you planning on completion?
