CHIMNEY HEIGHT

What's in This Article?

If your grill has a chimney, you'll want to make sure that the chimney is the appropriate height to keep your grill functioning properly.

 

WHY IS CHIMNEY HEIGHT IMPORTANT?

Having too high of a chimney cap can allow too much airflow, causing the fire to burn too hot. This can result in temperature swings.

Having too low of a chimney cap can restrict airflow, forcing smoke to come out of the hopper. This can result in having ash on your food.

 

WHAT IS THE APPROPRIATE CHIMNEY HEIGHT?

Grills with a chimney should have approximately a thumb's space (¾ inch or 2cm) between the chimney and the cap.

 

HOW TO ADJUST YOUR CHIMNEY'S HEIGHT

Adjusting your chimney's height is easy: just twist the chimney cap to raise and lower it to your desired height.
