I was just using that for the square inches basically. I will cut some shapes low and towards the door of the fire box. I plan on doing double the vent area (72sqin on the left and 72sqin on the right of the FB) so I have the option to use either side if the wind is acting up that day
If it were me I would go 6" tall and split my fire grate as I like air moving below and above my coal base. You can always have way more intake than specified but it is hard to get air if you do not have the opening.
Thank you so much for the help. How far should I raise the fire basket from the bottom of the firebox? The 6" referenced above makes me think 3"? Also should I do a v shaped or flat fire basket?
