Thanks @gtsum! Looks like a 10 or 15 degree downturn? I'm like you @sandro, decisions decisions (also tried an aluminum Franklin-style temporary setup that worked well)

Honestly I don't think I'm going back to other prototypes after seeing how well this tiny backyard offset performs with the Franklin-style baffle... Though the Workhorse seem to be a little bit more efficient with fuel consumption (half the throat, less draw)

I don't think the WH and Franklin have that much of difference in throat size. Those pictures of the WH throat is from a 24" pipe vs. the Franklin 20" pipe. I bet if you measured sq. inches of the throat, the WH wouldn't be that much smaller, although they have a different shape.

I recently got my shipping notice on my 1969, I’ll try to remember to measure the throat dimensions when I clean out and season it when it arrives. I think the 1969 is closest in dimensions to Franklin (20”dx42”l).

Received my 1957 last Friday. Seasoned it on Saturday and cooked on Sunday.

So far very impressed by how efficient it is and the quality of the pit.

Two 24" pipes overlapping at grate level give about 177 square inches of throat, which is then halved to 88.5; two 20" pipes give 123 square inches; shape aside, WH's throat is 28% smaller. For comparison, my tiny 16x36 has a 78 square inches throat, and WH's-style baffle halved it to 39, which is still larger than the suggested minimum 33 for my 16x21" firebox. When using that design I noticed a higher fuel efficiency but somewhat less draw. Potato potato perhaps

edit: @gtsum thanks a ton man! I'm planning on building a sturdier WH-style baffle for the smoker to run some more tests, those measurements will be really helpful in scaling things down

edit 2: seems like there's a tiny gap between the lip / baffle and the half-moon, 1/4" at most, where a small amount of heat can escape and rise while the rest gets pushed further down because of the Venturi effect caused by the 30° slope. Interesting
