    If Feldon's says use 47 sq in., make it 71.... When using Feldon's. make the FB 100% of actual size in the calcs.... then use the numbers.... then multiply the FB/CC opening x 1.5... that give a better smoker...... use this formula for the size of the FB/CC opening....
    http://www.1728.org/circsect.htm .... Use Radius and Segment Height ED to figure the opening......
