Although it would be most likely a single shelf , What in your opinion would be a too small dia for the time and investment to build a stick burner . I have the opportunity to get FREE either 5/16 and or 3/8 20 inch pipe both are roughly 12 feet long ?

I built a 20" and i'm very happy with it also. I think the 5/16 would be my first choice, Good luck with your build.

I was thinking about 5 or 6 feet length and using about 2feet of 18round for the fire box . Either of you do Reverse flow or insulated . I was considering these options as well .If I were to insulate I was picturing a Rectangular Framed opening With insulated doors to match . Any thoughts Looking for all the input before the build . On the 18" is there room for a upper shelf ?

Seeing how a reverse flow plate and the primary cooking grate is going to take up the first 50% of the depth, you'll be left with 9" of height. You could probably squeeze another grate halfway in there just specifically for cooking ribs or spatchcock chicken. A second grate width will be about 15-1/2 inches. I think it would be worth doing just for those special occasions.

I built a dual height rack for half of my pit. It's removable. Does ok on ribs. Mine runs hotter on top. Pit is 5 1/2 ft and I made the tier rack 3 ft. I don't normally cook enough to use it, but nice to have.

Nothing wrong with a 20" for sure I would would like it to be in the 48" to 60" length. The depth is always a problem when you go to smaller diameters along with trying to squeeze in a second shelf but they do make nice smokers.
I would also go with the 5/16" wall.
I look forward to seeing what you decide on. Very Happy

Thank You ALL for the input .
And KAM you would not go any longer than the 60 "
Would you just run tuning plates and ditch the RF

I would but I am partial to my plates.
Personally I would not carry a 20" chamber past 60". The amount of heat to cover the area is going to cause a very hot firebox side whether you go R/F or tuning plates in my opinion.

I built a 20" RF, with 1/4" wall, 54" long with a single shelf and it works great for me. I don't have to burn a truck load of wood to do 1 or 2 butts, but I can get 8 butts on at one time without them touching.
