Default Pit photos, and a question.

So I have been building this pit for about 5 months. I plan to have it powder coated, and it is currently sand blasted. Main chamber is 24''x 3'3" with a 3/8" wall thickness. My firebox is 18"x 3'2" with a 1/2" wall thickness. It is trimmed out with stainless flat bar as the flanging for the door which will be polished to a high shine. I designed everything on her. I am super proud of the hinges I designed, and spent forever rounding, and polishing. It is reverse flow, and last night proved it ran like a champ. Shooting a laser on the top of the fire box and getting a reading of nearly 400 degrees got me thinking of a warming box. If I were to put a warming box( I guess that is what they are called) above my fire box how hot could it get. Do they just warm or could pies be cooked in them? I would go flush with the sides of my firebox, and tie into my main chamber. Not sure how high I want to go. Looking for ideas, and advice. 533881_10200210051352615_555808895_n.jpg
