    Ahh sorry got off track. I don't believe anyone here has built a Stumps clone. I know there are a lot of em out there. I'll give you a link to one I found on a quick search. I'm sure there are plans or step by step sites.

    Please be the first to share your full gravity feed build here.

    Yeah I've seen a lot of builds jerry has a great gravity build on this site.

    I'm just looking for numbers from anyone with any brand of gravity system so i can get an idea of firebox to cook chamber proportions.

    I've seen where I can buy plans for them but I haven't seen any that are the size I want to build. So no point buying plans I'm not going to use or follow

    Here is a post with definition of terms:


    http://www.theqjoint.com/forum/showt...ity-Fed-smoker See post #7


    There is no formula that I know of. That said I talked with Smokin Jim and he said that for a cooker that size that he would go with an 8" by 8" chute with a 3" by 5" transfer tube. Jim suggested 3/8" stainless steel reinforcement at the chute base.


    I am partial to firebrick either way will work.

    www.smokingmeatforums.com has a forum section on various smoker builds. Here are several (with lots of photos):

    The Prairie BBQ Association used to have a very large Smoker Clone Builds forum, most of which were gravity feed smokers, but they appear to have gone out of existence. Maybe you can find some of their old pages at Archive.org

    Yeah it is
    I was able to get some 3"x6"x1/4" rectangle tubing from the scrap pile for my transfer tube giving me about a 2.5"x5.5" inside I figured that's close enough and found some 1/2"x9"29" and threw the kid a 20 and he cut it to 7"x9" pieces making my burn chamber 7x7x9 im thinking 9" should be tall enough. I came out of there with a bunch of good steel and only spent half the price as my previous trips gotta love the remnants pile at the steel yard they even have it stacked on shelves indoors
