Looks good so far doogie.
Maybe you could use another barrel on the back side down lower and run two 4 inch pipes form the ends to the center of each barrel? Or how about two add on fire boxes on each end of the cook chamber. Like this fire box....

I bought one for 49.95 at Menards a few months ago works well on my barrel smoker

thanx, actually i talked to my brother in-law today about it, he works for a business that makes evaporaters for sugaring and thinks he can build me a box. if he can it would be great, spend a little less money on steel and a little more on meat.
