First was, hot pipes in the front.. i can see me breakin one when I throw a log on.
Second was, you don't want to blow your fire in the firebox AND send it too quickly down the shute.
Third, a Pipe coming in any other way and of front before going up would be a pan in the ash.
forth because some yahoo build this crappy oversized firebox they cut out the grid that kept logs from rolling into the chamber. This helps a bit
