The manager at the elevator I work at wants a smoker with a center mount internal firebox like my Buela. The barrel we went and picked up tonight is larger then the one I built Buela out of, I'll get some measurements tomorrow and post them. The question I have for you folks is, how can we get rid of the hot spot over the firebox? I have thought about putting a heavy plate a couple of inches above the firebox, to act as a tuning plate or making a waterpan a few inches wider than the firebox and letting the water defuse the heat, but think this would make a large amount of steam. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks Steve P.S. He wants it to be operational by a week from Thursday, Sept.20th.
