Default Need help with firebox location

Need a little schooling on my firebox. I am about to mount a 7ft 30 inch round tank on a 14 ft trailer. Ideally it would be great to mount the pit facing left to right at the front of the trailer, however this would require me to mount the firebox on the back of the pit resting on the tongue dead center. I also intend on installing tuning plates the length of the pit. Any pro's and cons would be very helpful ...thanks

Ok Bbobb, I'm a little confused. (heres where Half Fast gets even with me)
Left to right means sideways to me.
Most all trailered horizontal pits I've seen, the pipe runs front to back. The stack by the tongue/front and the firebox towards the rear.
Pit doors can be on either side, your preference.
I don't know if this helps. Throw a sketch in if you can.

Soooo sorry for not keeping up fellas. I am a contractor and the work flood gates busted wide open...good thing. When i walk up on the trailer and toward the front the doors will be facing me and the firebox will be dead center on the back side resting on the tongue. Will i have serious center hot spot in the center even with the tuning plate

Ya will if you don't design it right!
I'd borrow Ok plagiarize the DP design use two pipes off the fire box into the oven with a "T"on the inside made from a piece of 8" pipe that is cross sectioned and connects the two inlets and burn some holes in it to equalize the temp.
