Couple of questions:Oversize FB's seem to work very well..... 1/3 of the CC and larger.... More space under the wood grate for ash to collect.... More wood controlled at a lower temp for long duration cooks... More of a uniform heat for consistent temps... BUT, aesthetics is important also....
Personally, I would lean toward a perfect smoker, that cooks better than whatever is my second choice....
For the doors, do you have something similar planned for what is pictured below...... Dave

In the drawing on the right, I'm not sure I understand what "Divide Areas 80-20 / 90-10" means.
According to Feldon's calculator if I size my firebox at 100% it calls for almost 4 openings 1.5" wide and 3" high.
Would that be 3 of them at the bottom and one of them at the top? Or should I change the calculator to the actual size of the FB and use those dimensions to size the intake openings? That comes out to almost 5 - 2"X3" openings. So would that be 3 on the bottom and two on the top?
