Default Help! Smoker Modification

Iím going to add a vertical box to the end of my horizontal OK Joe smoker. I calculated the new total smoke chamber volume, the revised intake opening, and the calculation says I need an exhaust chimney that is 64Ē long, when using 3Ē pipe.

The Questions:

1. Can I divide that up into 3 separate pipes? Or does it need the actual length to get the correct draft?


2. Do I need a chimney, or can I use holes in the top or upper sides of the new box? I would use a slider over the holes to close it off when needed.


Your experience and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I'm no design expert, but my Klose has the horizontal and vertical chambers... the chimney is maybe 6" long, located at the top of the vertical box. The vertical box acts as a chimney, and the flapper on the chimney helps control the draft.

I wasn't sure if I was gonna be able to deal with this design at first, but with the help of a very dear friend and fellow Klose owner, this thing is now a cookin' machine...

Thank you Hawgheaven, I appreceate the feedback on your setup.

I was hoping to get a little advice from a builder on the site, but... I guess I'll just put two stacks (close to what the calculations recommend) and cap or uncap depending on what it ends up needing.

I would rather throw on the extra pipe and not need it, then not have a good draft.

I usually go to the junk pile , grab up a piece of pipe and weld it on. Math hurt my head.
