    I'm making progress on my first build 113 gal propane tank RF. Got the lid cut/mounted and fb opening cut..

    Now seems like I should clean/cure or some sort of prep on the inside of the cook chamber before I start on the firebox and rf plate install. I guess wire brushing rust out and all, but what are your recommendations on top of that? Like oiling, burning it out or what not?

    I know there probably a thread somewhere already, if so maybe someone can put the link?

    Okay, not much response to my original question, but nevertheless I have another

    Would it be bad to have the fire box to cook chamber opening over sized? I know I can use the calculator, but I just want to make sure it is plenty large enough, and I really don't want to mess with a damper at that location either if I can just control the heat with the fire box air inlet??
