Thank you, thank you.
The firebox outlet won't be an issue. It was placed at that level for a specific purpose. The exhaust is already cut, so this would be problem one. The second problem with making a rf with this build is the height; as you can see, if we tried to do this, we would run out of room. The tuning plates, cooking surface and exhaust would all have to fit above the firebox outlet for that to work. We didn't want a rf build. The layout we chose will disperse heat evenly across the entire cooking surface. We paid a lot of attention to the science that goes with building an efficient smoker. One of these days we'll have results to share!
