Started working on getting the racks knocked out.... Next up is exhaust stack.... Question, calculations are showing 36" for a 6" stack. Can i make it longer or will that change flow to much?

Follow the calculator, it will make for a proper running pit.

Secondly, why in the world would you want a longer stack....it just adds weight and looks goofy!

It can be a little longer, just put a damper on it in case you need to slow the draft.

Got some time to finish the bottom grates while waiting exhaust stack to get here...Ordered it online due to the cost of 6" pipe....

Thinking forward to the trailer part of this build. Thinking just a simple single axle out of 2x4 11g... Will that be sufficient strength?

That should be fine. I normally use 2x3 for my trailer builds and haven't had any problems.
