The link was bellow your thread.

Otherwise, i have no opinion!

On mine, i did it slightly higher, but not much than exit.

What's bellow the link between the two acts kind of a single bell.

For example, if you had two bells next to each others, one low entrance in the first bell, a link between the two, on top, and a low exit, the first bell would vaguely act as a bell, but more like a chimney, and the second like a downdraft tube.

Add a bottom link, while retaining the top link, you have a single bell, with a wall inside.

Best practice, is link at the bottom. . But there is also a matter of practicality. If it's not easy to do, a link between the two, higher than usual is fine.

If you search well, there is a subject about the exact same situation, may be two years old. Or more.
Still thinking about putting stuff in the heat riser?

That's easy.

You have to remember that the temp in the heat riser is often between 800 and 1200C°

About cooking in the riser, i can't see how that could be possible. Just a cast iron grid, above my riser, kills sausages in a few seconds.

The trick to protect the barrel, i would use a grid of perforated sheet metal.

If you drill a hole for the wok, may try to find yourself a cast iron ring and cover to fit in there.

Did i show you this one?

Cool then.

There's one thing i saw yesterday.

I thought your chimney was all connected. But no.

A little more performance could be reached by insulating that spiral tube.

You must have some draft, otherwise you would be talking about puffbacks at least. But may be not as much as you'd wish for.

Yes Peter. But, forests tend to grow in europe. And they're worse for biodiversity than grassland. Or at least scientists say that. You're also forgetting a fact, that is, if you scatter cut threes ib a forest, it gives chance to the other ones to grow bigger. That means that a well managed forest has better yield than a primary forest. Cut the brush, for firewood, then the bad trees, then the carpentry trees, and re plant as the cycle repeats. Which is better, primary forest, or well managed forest, i don't know. But i think they're not that far off, from each other.

't say earlier, but it's normal that it cracks. Heat expansion of metal is faster and may be greater than concrete. So the barrel most certainly has pushed the concrete.
