What do you mean by "flus"? We call the vertical barrel smoker an Ugly Drum Smoker or UDS.

Here is one thread on a double barrel smoker which shows using regular stove flue pipe in the pics. I am sure others will chime in with other suggestions now that we know what you are looking for.

I used duct pipe from Lowes on mine. It still has some gaps where it connects to the barrel, but it is the outlet anyway and I figure it doesn't matter. I see little if any smoke coming from those gaps. Mine is located in the middle top of the upper barrel. If you put the exhausts on the side you could use steel pipe with an elbow. Then the nut on the inside would be flush with the barrel and be a little more airtight. The pic below was before I put the exhaust on top, but it is on the top barrel - a little back from top dead center. The only thing left to do on this smoker is to insulate the bottom door a little more and get rid of any extra gaps around it. Maybe I can take a new pic tomorrow and show off the base and wheels I put on it.

Check out www.vogelzang.com for your double barrel needs. In the Barrel Stove section, they have pieces for a double barrel set up. Mine works great!

Mine was cut out and the hinges welded on. I didn't construct it, just did a few upgrades. It looked like he took another barrel to make the door since it is bigger than the opening. I use a few magnets to make it close tight, but I am getting some gasket insulation to go around the door on the top barrel and the loading door on the bottom.
