You burn enough hard wood to make a hot bed of coals that are at least a foot deep... The coals cook the meat without air.

After placing a lid on the hole and covering it with dirt, you need to go around and make sure there is no smoke escaping... no air can get into the hole or it will cause flair ups and the meat will burn.

You don't want any air holes at all...
