Welcome to SMF Sawruff. First of all, stop over in "Roll Call" & introduce yourself so that the other members can welcome you & we find out who you are as well. Now, about the size, there is really no limit to the size. You can make a huge one to go behind your cooking chamber or a medium sized one to go at the back (left or right of your smoker, your choice). You should draw up a diagram so you can physically see what it is you want to accomplish & go from there. There are great posts in the smoker build section of this forum. But introduce yourself & tell us a little something about you so we can get a feel for how to assist you properly. Have fun & enjoy your stay.

When I did mine the lid warped a bit in the burn out of the tank and it wouldn't close all the way I ended up re-bending the lid a bit with some heavy duty all-thread.
There are also some claps you can get to clamp the lid down

i was also think about a slide bar time of thing off the legs we will see what ill do i still thing i should of made the fire box bigger though its 13 tell 13 wide and 18'' long my cooking space is about 54'' by 23'' round kind and this lid is pissing me off there gaps all over im not no master fab man my fab is my hammer that i did

i all so have a water pan thats i put in at somewhat the top of the fire box about 2'' down from the top the pan is from a brinkmann water smoker the 2 door upright will this effect my heat and smoke to the cooking space or should i rethink the placement of the pan i like the water in the smoker so i would like to try to keep it anyones 2 cents would be great this is my frist one and will not be the last one do do and do again
