    I just had to make one. 3x12 inch pipe with a movable damper .
    I put about 2 cups of chips in it see how it worked and it smoked for about 3 1/2 hours with the damper almost closed off . Going to make some for some friends . Best thing is I don't think I going have to use an air pump Merry Xmas to you and My buddy that told me about this forum ( pics are rough shape and final paint)
    My wife calls it the flux capacitor lol

    Do you have any plans for one?? I would like to try making one without the air compressor attached to it like the smoke daddy.

    I used a 12 inch long 3" pipe and 3 5x5 1/8 " plate and a 3/4 " x 8" pipe , 3 5/16" bolt ,nut, and washers
    welded the nuts to the 3 " pipe to hold the damper and a lid on (2 for the lid and 1 for the bottom damper) drilled a 1" hole 1" from the lid end (top) to put the exhaust in and welded it in. drilled the plates to match the
    nuts welded to the 3" pipe put the bolts in and used a cut off wheel to trim the sqaure plates to the shape of the pipe.
    to mount made slotted holes in another plate to slide over the exhaust and welded it so I can take it on and off my mes to clean
    I can post more pics but haven't got the Qview to work or i can email them to you Dave

    So far it's worked great as long as I get the main pipe warm it stays smoking and I just make sure I keep the propane torch on for a full
    minute ,starts drafting good . If I put saw dust in it,it might need a pump
    but so far I'm more than happy with it!
