Thinking about building a reverse flow pit using a tank that is about 24" x 6'. How much distance to i need to allow between the grate and the plate? I would appreciate the feedback.

On my 30" diameter pit the plate is 6" from the bottom grate.

I would do this^! Mine is a 24"X72" tank and I left 6" between the RF plate and lower cooning grate. I wish I had tightened it up to 3-4; an extra inch between the lower and upper cooking grate and an extra inch between the upper grate and door would have been REALLY beneficial.

I have a 48x20" and it is about 3-3.5" from the plate to the bottom of the grate
