I Hope so - won't be insulated tho - not sure if I can insulate it yet but it's double walled(thin metal) with 1-1.5" air gap so that's better than single thin wall.

I gotta figure me up an exhaust - it has just a rectangle hole in top of back wall - thinking of plating that off and putting pipe in top but top is slightly domed/ curved and gotta figure out my intakes - probally 1 1" pipe nipples and ball valve on each side (2 total) - and make a charcoal basket (easy).

The bottom half of the firebox is not Double Walled and is Louvered for propane air intake and as you can see in the pics there is a 1" channel in back corners and 1" lip on front so the FireBox insert will have a 1" air gap around 2 sides and the back. So I cut some plate and painted the Louver side with High Temp Silver Paint and installed with Stainless bolts and High Temp RTV to seal off the Louvers.
I tried to test fit the FB insert but it is a tight enough fit it would not go past the screw you see in the top right corner of bottom pic- which is a Good thing- I'll just have to take a few screws out and squeeze it in there!. the insert is gonna be permanent anyways and I'll have a removable Charcoal Burn Basket.

It would be a good candidate to add a Pellet Pro controller to.

It fits - back corners were tighter fit -- since it has no top and short front wall the sides lean in a hair but atleast it's no too big and need trimming !

Well drilling 1 1/4 holes in 1/8" plate SUCKS! esp thru Stainless Skin then 1/8" plate then another 1/8" plate an inch in. Using a Step Bit and oil but Burned up my 2 Old Cheapo 3/8" Drills and had to go Buy a REAL Drill - 1/2" Rigid. Then Home Depot doesn't carry 1"x3" pipe nipples and 2" was too Short so I got 4" but they are too long so now I gotta find something to use as spacer behind conduit nuts. So between that and watching GBabys 2 Ballgames I didn't get a lot accomplished today!
UDS was MUCH Easier..........
