6'x22" is the size. And I probably will add a fire box in the future as soon as I find some cheap material
I don't know about reverse flow but I am going to make it where I can shut off the fire box for direct heat when I want.
Thats why I put the intake on the right lower side. It drafts great as of now. And I added the plates to restrict the flow if needed.
I thought about building a plate inside to keep the direct heat off the meat but then I thought I like a steak cooked over super hot so I decided not to.
I cooked a steak on it last week and man was it good.
I used a bag of charcoal with two big sticks of semi green hickory and it went for hours.
I have almost an unlimited supply of hickory,redoak and white oak around here and on my hunting club leases that timber cutters leave behind so thats my source of cooking fuel.
I also built a big old open fire grill I have been using for years and love the open fire cooking. It's time to get into the slow smoking style.
