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 never gave it a second thought on mine. Of course now it is so gummed up with bbq crud that I'm sure it won't be flaking onto anything anytime soon!!!
