My first fire

Discussion in 'Side Fire Box' started by dmwtx79, Mar 29, 2015.

  1. Built first fire in smoker today. It is a horizontal with a vertical. My temp are about 100 degrees different. Any suggestions??? I can get my horizontal to 500 no problem but vertical is about 200 then. I'm thinking that my exhaust is not large enough. The fire box opening is a 5 1/2 " opening, I used the calculator to figure opening between FB and CC. Used same opening for CC to vertical. I have a 3" exhaust. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciates
     
  2. Thought a pic might help. The current exhaust is a 3". Am I on the right track?
