    You can dump a chimey in and then unlit on top of it or just fill it up with unlit and light it with a torch or weed burner or something through the coal grate.

    The chute for the coal is approx 4 x 4. It never burns up as long as you keep the lid closed.

    You don't need a fire, just a couple of day old coals.

    The charcoal chute is typically 6"x6" (4"x4" would be way too small) and some are slightly tapered outwards near the bottom. This is to help prevent charcoal hangups. The charcoal grate at the bottom is 1/2" dia rods and they are placed approx 1" apart, both ways. The opening into the cooking chamber will vary with the size of cooking chamber. My cooking chamber is 36"x36"x22" and the opening is 3"x5". I hope this helps some of you. As far as lighting the cooker, you can dump in a chimney of lit coals and then fill with unlit OR you can fill with unlit and light from the bottom with a weed burner or some other type of torch.

    Definitely do this if you are building one.

    I have an older model GF and it is it just a straight shot unlike the newer models. I never had trouble with briqs, but I have to watch some of the piece size of the lump or get the occasional bridge.

    Post it in the classifieds and in the swap shop forum.

    I'll buy it if you want to sell it below wholesale.
