    Again in the above picture I placed a magnetic door over the fire chamber for quick access to add wood.

    My 48 Frigidaire

    Now I found that racks are premade to fit these fridges so that was convenient. I bent a pretty thick peice of steel to cover the stove pipe in the bottom to baffle the flame but let smoke and heat up.
