Does the 1/3 rule of thumb refer to the size of the firebox in relation to the size of the pit?
The rule of thumb refers to the cubic inch area of the cook chamber. In other words my cook chamber is about 72,000 cubic inches and my firebox is about 24,000 cubic inches. I will seif I can find the exact reference but I am sure you can find it by doing a search on here.

Ok Cheez,

Your explaination was what I needed. Building a cooker myself and the size of the firebox in relation to the cooker wasn't something I hadnt considered.
