Nothing real scientific...
Emptied out the firebox... leaving just a fire grate in the box... and measured how big the opening was from the grate to the top of the opening.
Measured how wide and deep (left to right) and from the opening to the back to the smoke outlet... and subtracted 2" from all sides to allow space. Had the grate remade as well... solid steel frame, legs out of angle iron, and a double layer of expanded steel with one level slightly offset to retain burning pieces... only finer ash particles to drop.
Based on my offset... the charcoal box is on the bigger side... will hold over 30 lbs charcoal easy.
