    Default Building by ear!

    The only plans I have are drawn up in my head! Yeah I know I'll probably catch hell throughout the build from some of you guys but that's how I roll!!!

    I am building an insilated cabinet style with inside dimensions of 36"48"24 with a 12" base and 8" wheels.

    I want to build it as a gravity feed but arent against dropping a firebox inside the base and sacrificing some cooking space to get'r done.

    Now the part I'm having a hard time with is finding dimensions or proportions for the size of the burn chamber and fire box for the gravity feed. I've looked at feldons calculator and a few other calculators and sites and they recommend almost 14,000 cubic inch box. but i dont think this should aply to a gravity feed since the fire doesn't burn in the box it burns at the bottom of the chute. So by these numbers this would be a huge chute with a this size of a burn section. And the box below is basically there to catch the ashes add wood for smoke and clean out.

    I know a few of you guys have made your own gravity feeds and others on here own some. My question is where did you get your proportions to build it? And if you own one can you give me your measurements/proportions of yours. Cook chamber to firebox, burn chamber and chute.

    I'm just trying to get an idea of what proportion I need to shoot for so I'm not leaving it under powered

    Thanks in advance

    This is a GOSM gasser cabinet smoker converted to a charcoal smoker with basket in the bottom. Insulated and double walled. Very cool tribute smoker!

    It cooks great Tom. He isulated and double walled it and add felt gasket to the door along with latches to hold it shut. BGE exhaust topper and a ball valve air intake set up for guru temp control. All set on a frame with go cart wheels and can be pulled / steered by the handle.

    I agree it's an awesome build!!! But it won't help me answer the question for my current build.

    Any thoughts or ideas on my original question on the gravity system proportions
