Offset of verticle stove pipe between stoveand chimney

The wood burning stove is connected to the chimney using four ft.of double wall and two 90 degree double wall elbows at the chimney which travels another 12 feet through the roof This oause ffset is required to aligne the stove with the cgimney. It is not possible to reposition either stove or chimney.

the problem Is that the fire is hard to start and smokes badly until the fire and stove are hot. My question is thie cause due to this pipe installation or is there another reason? If this is the problem would replaceing the two 90 degree elbows with two 45 degree elbows improve the performance? If this is the solution how is it accomplished?

This is a Canadian made stove. made by LTD. Barrie Ontario Canada

Sirocco eco 3 gas fire. Flames burning ignition cable

Yellow flames is lack of air blocked burner ,blocked injector , low gas pressure .

I would put a smoke pellet up the chimney to see if you have a pull on the chimney to see if it is not blocked , or if you have down draught what sort of pot are you thinking of putting on the top ?

Door seal loose

You can use wood stove gasket adhesive to reattach it. Or better yet, replace the whole thing, with wood stove rope gasket material. If you opt to do the latter, take a small 6" piece with you, when you go shopping for the rope gasket, as it's not one size fits all.Most hardware stores like Ace & true Value stock the wood stove rope gaskets. You will need to know the overall length that you need.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I just bought the double doored Brinkmann Vertical, and was wondering if I need to spray down with oil and burn one time before cooking? Any help would be appreciated.

I would do that. It will undoubtedly smoke some the first time you use it, as the paint and oils on the pieces burn off. You want your food to taste like wood smoke, not paint smoke. I would leave the racks out and just wash them before you use them. Happy smokin'

I have purchased model #20050611. Can I smoke with wood chunks only and not use charcoal? Do I put the pre-soaked wood in the flame disk bowl or the water bowl? I am used to a double barrel wood smoker...

Wood only. No Charcoal. If you're using wood chips - soak them first. No sure wood chunks will work, as they will have a tendency to flare up & burn rather than smoke.

The presoaked wood chips go in the flame disc bowl, below the water bowl. The water bowl goes on the first shelf bracket from the bottom up.

I was going to send you a copy of your Owners Manual, but the Model Number you listed does not match up with any Masterbuilt Smokers?

Enjoy your smoker,

Use approximately 5 lbs of charcoal or a little more that a chimney charcoal starter and let it go grey and get your grill to the temp you are looking for then add the pecan on top of the charcoal in the fire box.

Do wood chips go in water or coals

wood chips and chunks go on coals if using chips you may want to soak in water so they wont burn so fast

How do I use the wood for the smoker

I notice you have an offset smoker. The idea is to get the coals going in the firbox (the smaller circular chamber). The heat from the coals will rise into the main smoking chamber (the large circular chamber) where the food is.

It is difficult to keep your temp set right (about 250) when smoking ribs, brisket or pork **** on a less expensive offset smoker. I don't know what kind you have but it looks like a Brinkman or Charbroil. I'm not being snobby about this as I have a Silver Smoker myself ($185 at Menards).

The solution is to modify it. Search the web for terms like "smoker mod/s". You should be able to find directions on inserting a heat deflection plate, extending your smoker pipe, even adding bricks to the bottom of the smoker chamber to hold the heat. Good luck.
