Cornfused!(yes I know I spelled it wrong)My question is, I'm building a hog cooker that i can use for smoking too.I'm going for a southern pride style firebox, I.E round pipe mounted at 4:30 on the cook chamber;So my question is on the calc it say's I need a 20"dia tube for the firebox,but all the built ones I see online have 16" tubes.is the fireboxes to small on the online brands? or is 20" not right for the style?
cook tank 36"x72"
say's I need a 20"x72" firebox.
This is close to what I want to do.

daddywoofdawg, the calculator is designed for horizontal draft what your building is more like an upright. This is the reason the smaller tubes on the southern prides work, the heat/smoke travels more in and up rather than across up and out. If you give the smaller tube enough intake and exhaust it will work however you may burn a bit more fuel than if you had a larger firebox.
I hope this helps. Smile

So I can get away with a 16"? but bigger is better? I know of some free 14" tube would that be too small?

In my opinion yes 14" would be on the small side.
