I don;t think that would be a problem with a tank as long as yours, and for that matter, there are times that having a hot spot comes in handy.
    Thank you. From his comments and looking at the pit I had figured that was pretty much how it was built. There are a lot of ways to skin this cat & most any design will produce good que once you learn how to use it's characteristics to your advantage. It makes no difference if it is a FEC 100 or a cinder block pit covered in tin. You have to learn how to use it, and either will get the job done.

    No sir...but I will check out the link as soon as I get done keeping up with you. I ain't that fast at this typing thing.

    Interesting cookers...I am curious as to how they are built internally...never seen those before.

    The pipes come in most of the way to the front of the unit. There is a hot spot on each side directly above them about 15" square.

    Here is the thread that tells about Beula and has a few pics:http://www.theqjoint.com/forum/showt...-pics-of-Buela
