Default high and uncontrolable temps

I put a good load of charcoal in the basket and put about 10 ashed over birqs on top. WOW does that get hot quick!!!! Put both grills on and covered, lid vent wide open and watched temp rise. At 220* I closed the intake vent down and tried to hold between 220 and 250*. Had no luck, temps kept rising. Could it be an ill fitting lid?? Or possible not enough exhaust??? I think I have plenty of intake because I can open it up and the temps go out the roof fast!! I figure I have about 3 square inches of exhaust.

See " Official start of SS UDS thread" for build pics.

Ideas???

Thanks,

Paul B
