Edit. Pic needs turned 90 degrees. Haven’t figured this site out yet

Yessir. I just found the shoebox threads last night and read them. My thoughts was the same as yours with a insert slid in. I’m curious as to the outside measurements of your core. I was thinking after seeing yours if the firebox could be partially outside and the shoebox area turned at 180 degrees to be centered inside the tank because the tank I have is about 32 inches. Thank you for posting this!!!

I build my fire the same way I always have... (did I say different?) two chunks one on each side paper and kindling in the middle ... all the rest of the wood on top of that and light her off, rite back at the door... It burns great for me this way. No startup issues.

The C intersection should be dry, and filling it up with silicone or other sealant violates a cardinal rule of roofing - ALWAYS let the water go. If some water finds its way through a nail hole or something and into that cavity and it can drain away - or vent away - then you can create real problems!
So ... why isn't the porch roof draining? Unless it is completely flat that water should go away, especially as water coming off the pitched roof has energy to help sweep any water off. I'd look at your gutters and any trim details on the roof edge.
