Default Offset Firebox question

I am building a reverse flow smoker out of a 250 gallon and have a question about the size..... It says in the chart, I need a little over 19,000 cubic inches inside the box, but I have found a great wood stove with almost 17,000 cubic inches inside. Will it still function properly if I use a box that is slightly too small?

You should start a thread on your build and post all build related questions there..

How big is the wood stove? depends on the dimensions

Your going to want more length for that size Tank... You will have to fill it up to get the tank up to temp.. I would look for a bigger wood stove.. or Make a conventional FB out of 1/4 or better sheet metal..

24x24x24 works great.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
