Hey lumpocoal, Looks good.
One observation though...
The burning coal looks like it's touching the angle iron that keeps the firebrick in place...? If it is, the intense heat could warp/burn it up. I've seen firebrick retainer angle iron warp to the point where it's hard to get firebrick in and out that when they need replacing. :(
Does the coal swell to the point that it touches the iron?

HAHA, LMAO, :lol: I had to put that up because I have single wall for the top few sections to get me that 3' above roofline. I just used some SS fence wire every couple feet to keep the singlewall from leaning over in high wind. works pretty well just looks like crap

It seems to be safe no real issues w/it. the single wall leaning over was though until I stood up that small pipe, and cemented the connection well case/single wall, because the ID of well case is 6 3/8
