I have 8 3/4" holes in the drum lid and just the vent on the BL lid. I will have to do some more experimenting to see whether there is too much smoke or if it's the right amount.
I thought about adding some fiberglass wood stove gasket to the lid but I read that the fiberglass may not be food safe since it cracks and glass fibers are released. Any input on that subject?
I will post some pics of the lid now that the lip is flattened out as soon as I can.
I've seen builds where people use high temp caulk on the lid, then put cookie sheet (wax paper) around the ring and squeeze the lid down on it and let it set up...it might be worth a try! :/
