24 inches?? really??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

great thanks to all who have helped out so far, everything's coming out great except i've spent more than i thought i would have.  so my current question is does the first grate really need to be 24 inches from top of coal basket??  common basket height is 8 inches, plus 3 inches for legs, plus 24 inches is 35, my barrel is only 33" high, and i planned on using two grates with a dome lid.  someone please clarify, there's so much info out there it's overwhelming.

are you using a smaller barrel? or am o thinking of a different person? if your using a regular barrel seven inches down to the grate is a good number

it should be 24" from the *bottom* of the basket to your first grate.
