a Chimney "Drip"

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by smokinmad, Sep 23, 2013.

    • New to this gig, I've been reading about the chimney problem of, Condensation. So, I wont be adding a roof mount chimney to my smokers.  My thought on the problem would be to come out the back, then, rather than putting a 90* to go up with, put a "T" joint in.  If you put a "T" in right out of the smoker and add your pipe to the roof, the Drips could run out the bottom and not be "curved" into the smoker. You could put a cap on the bottom of the "T" with holes to drain it, or cut a board to fit inside loosely.

    That "T" joint is an intriguing idea. My chimney comes out the back and curves up. I could probably retrofit it pretty easily.

    Neeley, morning....  You could turn the stack 90 deg either way and let it drip outside the smoker...  Dave
