I'm working on designing a new pit. It will be an upright 23" x25" x 44" tall. Without getting into space shuttle mathematics is there some ratio for the size of the inlet into cooking chamber, the size of exhaust as well as air intake? Thanks

The biggest thing I learned here (besides fire management) is air flow...as long the exhaust is LARGER then the intakes... flow friendly. Lack of airflow, air restriction/heavy smoke... bad.

Sure there are others... but thats the biggie for my set-ups.

There is another brethren thread on firebox/pit design thats simplifies things very clear:
