Seems like a 40lb pot.

Does that sound right Doug? Thing really eats coal.

it holds about a bag of coal if you bank it up near the baffle (thing with the 88... it sucks with stove coal, it sucks with pea coal...unlike a 44) .... IDK why that is but i assume its the depth of firebed and allowable airflow through it. use NUT coal only in an 88 and you will be shocked how much heat it could throw for its 14"x14" footprint!

I'm finding a mix is working. I'll place chunks for stove in the center of the pot, and fill around with nut.
