    Hello All,

    Glad to be here!
    I am new member seeking an advise on a design.It is vertical smoker (stainless steel Members Choice) w
    hich sits on the 16X8X8 concrete block and I am adding off-set fire box (Concrete blocks 16X8X4). My primary fuel charcoal and mostly wood.

    Upright base is 48" tall concrete base and stainless steel MC cabinet sits on top of it.

    I need an advise on the size of opening from firebox to upright piece.

    My firebox is 31X19X20 and side opening to Upright is 8X8

    Is 8X8 is big enough. I would like to be able to adjust temp from 120F-250F.

    Thanks for advise Tom.

  2. I noticed this was almost a cpl weeks old.  Did you get an answer to your question yet?  I am not a builder so can't really help myself -- just concerned a new guy hasn't found the help he is looking for.

    Tom, morning..... Sorry this thread was missed.....  Could you draw a picture to clarify stuff for us old folks ??   It would sure help me....

    Also, if you would please take a moment and stop into " /Roll Call/   " and introduce yourself and get a proper welcome from our members.... Also, if you would note your location in your profile, it will help in the future when answering questions about smokin'...   elevation, humidity etc....
