    Hi all,

    I have been trouble shooting my double barrel smoker for the last 3 weekends. My issue is that the temperature in the cooking chamber does not exceed 188 F.

    My firebox air intake is 2"

    The connection between the two chambers is a single 5" duct

    The exhaust pipe is 2" (I think I should add another 2" pipe)

    Am I doing the sizing right? Does anyone have a working double barrel smoker and can provide the sizes of the pipes he/she has?

    Thank you

    add at least another 5" duct... not enough flow... triple your exhausts... your smoker is choking

    I have added another 5" duct and increased the size of the exhaust to 5" too. I'm now facing some smoke leaks and cold air ingress; so I will be using RTV silicon a lot this weekend.

    Thanks jayberque
