    Hi all. I am new to smoking and am looking to build and RF. The questions I have are I am using a tank that is 18x34, and the calculator says the fire box should be 14.25 square. Is there any harm in going 15 square and also is the size of the fire box the same for an RF as for a non RF. Thanks in advance

    The size the calculator gave you is a minimum.  You can go bigger no problem.    It should be the same size for either.

    If possible can you go 20" deep?

    The reason I ask this is because of the splits I think it might be easier to fuel it.

    I know when I get firewood I specify the length of the firewood.

    You might want to consider your access to wood and the length of the cuts.

    If this makes any sense.
