    What is your thoughts on this smoker? It is 16" x 60" 1/4" steel.
    I haven't seen it in person.
    Thinking about buying it for a project.

    I have never seen a 16" x 60" was wondering about air flow.

    from what I'm hearing.. long, small diameter, smokers are a bit of a challenge... the FB ( firebox) end will surely be much hotter than the exhaust stack end... although some people use that to their advantage.. knowing that end is hotter for quicker cooking.... others will be along to give you more feedback...

    My opinion, the FB looks too low to provide efficient heat, the exhaust may be ok, but the true length is cut off in the picture.

    Can you get it as a project and improve upon it, absolutely, but keep in mind, 60" is a LONG way for efficient heat when the FB is the same diameter of the cook chamber, and a lot shorter.

    Do you have an pictures that show the whole thing?

    Cranky this is the only other one.

    Thank you for your thoughts! That's what I was looking for.
    My main concern was the 16x 60 and the firebox I'm not sure is correct.
