be,  Is there any one out there can help me. I have looked at all the figures and tried the math but it dose not look right.

Firebox's are usually 1/3 the volume of the cooking chamber, with some builders going up to 50% of cc volume.

Use this calculator and post you math on here to double check.  http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/a/reverse-flow-smoker-how-to-calculate-build-tutorial

This will give you a great smoker that functions well.
