I now want to build a reverse flow cooker with the FB in the rear/lower of the CC. Will Feldons calculator still work for the vents, exhaust, and opening calculations?
I decided to do the rear mounted FB/RF design witha 250 gallon propane take pictured above. I came up with the following calculations, do they seem correct?
231 square inch FB/CC opening - 40"x5.75"
231 square inch area under the RF plate. (That seams awefully small for a cooker this big) (I am having trouble figuring out the actual size of the plate)
231 square inch area at the end of the R/F plate. 115.5 square inches at each end.
19,058 size of FB - 19"Hx17"Wx60"L
3ea 5" long air inlets
6" ID smoke stack 35" high.
Everything seams reasonable except the RF plate, I calculate a plate that was 82 inches long and 2 inches wide and I know thats just wrong.
