New vent controls on my UDS
Had my fist smoke last night on my new UDS I built. Ribs came out great but I need to rethink my setup for air ventilation.

I have 4 1.5" holes drilled around the bottom of the drum. I tried using magnets that I could slide around to get the right control. It worked, but not as well as I would have liked. Should I go with the common approach and drop in threaded nipples that can be capped off? Anyone seen other good ways to open and shut the holes?

I have 4 x 1" intakes...3 I use magnets and 1 has nipple and ball valve.

The magnets holes are either full open or full closed....I use the ball valve to do all my "fractions " of open....After a year of my uds i know what i need open to get temp I want....
