    I am building a new horizontal smoker. It will be  38inch round x 54 inches long. Offset firebox is 30 inches round and 22 inches in length. Smoker is made out of 1/4 steel and firebox is 3/4 steel.

    Is a 6 inch chimney / flu  sufficient?

    My old smoker was not big enough. This is a picture of a rib cook I did last dove season.

    OK guys. I'm thinking of the dual chimney. I can always choke it off but this may help with heat.

    Please comment as I have not done this yet.

      So you are not planning a reverse flow smoker? I think it would be easier to maintain consistant temps. Sorry, I can't help with details, but the calculator should give you all you need to know.

    No Mike I may add a warmer box above the fire pit later and turn it into a reverse flow when needed; I'll make the plate with handles and remove it when I'm not cooking reverse.

    Here is a thread on another forum if you are planning on building a "Hybrid" (ability to do both direct and reverse flow cooking) smoker.  This guy is local to me and put quite a bit of thinking and planning into his rig.
