Insulated Fire Box Sizing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a 250 gallon propane tank that I will be making into a reverse flow in the next couple weeks. I have researched a lot about the insulated fire boxes and figured that is the way to go, but I am unsure on what size it needs to be. I looked at other custom pits the same size and they run from 20 x 20 to 24 x 24. I tried using feldons pit calculations but they say it needs to be bigger than that. Has anyone built something similar? Does the size of the fire box change if one is insulated and one isn't? And what type of insulation has yall used? I'm thinking about the ceramic blanket but don't know if any brand is better than others? Thanks!

Hey Nick welcome to the site.  I don't have the answers your looking for but thought that you might get more attention to your questions if you post directly on the reverse flow build page.  Best luck.

Welcome from SC. It's good to have you on this great site. great advice from Jack. I have one question. If you're in Texas, why do you want an insulated FB? If anything, just make it a little bit thicker.

Good luck and good smokin', Joe
