    thanks got great help here from the guys
     
  2. Build looks great! Is your hot box double walled? I'm gonna be starting a RF out of a 6x3 foot tank. I'm interested in the preheating burner and am wondering about placement. I'm guessing it should go under the tuning plate? First major trailer mounted build so any advice from your build would be greatly appreciated. Keep up the updates!

     i got an electronic ignition to ignite the pilot flame the pilot will stay on  all the time of the smoke so if i need Moor heat i can light the preheat.

    and it is easy to light the preheat at the beginning without gating dirty

    Not sure how I missed this thread up till now. It's looking good and I'll be looking forward to seeing more. When I saw the log lighter I had the same concern as SQWIB about ashes falling down and clogging it up.
