  1. Hello we are starting a 200 gallon rf build next week. I drew up a plan lmk what ya think and what I need to change...[ATTACHMENT=1569]image.jpg (1,137k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]
    these are the measurement I cam up with the firebox will have 3 3x8 vents low one on each side one on door abd will also have a 5" round vent up high on door my biggest concern is my CC opening is a 12" tall opening enough?? Help is greatly appreciated!

    The 12" opening is more than enough for your FB. After adding it all up on the BBQ calculator, your FB is larger then recommended but its better to have too big then too small. Looks like it will turn out to be good. Good luck.

    You can actually drop down to 9 or 10" above the bottom of the tank and give yourself more room from the RF plate to the lower grate and still have an area under the RF plate equal to 1.5 the Feldon's required segment area (112 x 1.5 = 168 sq-in).

    Select the radius (15) and segment height (10) and you will find your area for the cutout and cross section under the RF plate (206 sq-in).


    It shows a chord of 28.28 inches and will be the number you want to use for the width of your firebox if you choose 10"

    If you go with a segment height of 9", the segment area will still be larger than 1.5 x Feldon's (178), and the chord (firebox width) will be 27.5.

    If you put your CC door at 3 o'clock and the RF plate at 9", your lower grate will be 6 inches above the RF plate, or 10 inches with 5 inches above the RF plate for the grate.
