Why is it that on almost every build I have read about on here the fireboxes are way bigger then the ones manufactures build? It seems common for the DIY guys to go 30" x 24" x 30" on a 250 build but manufacturer's just use 24" x 24" x 24".
The manufacturer wants no waste on his 4' x 8' plate. The home builder does not care about wasted drops!

And , more importantly, We are Cooks! And know the more room that fire has to breath, the cleaner it will burn. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
