I've got the feeling you will be building more and you will find that you don't need the intakes spaced around the barrel but can have two at the front or better yet- one large one at the front.
Great job on that lid!
Thanks.... My basket is 2" off floor and 12" high. My load yesterday was 24" from top of charcoal to top rack. I have a place to put another rack in 8" lower. Here are a couple of pics of basket.
I agree on the vents. I do not like bending over any more than I need to these days so I was already thinking a change is coming with the next one. However, I need spend a little time Q-ing and learning how to manage the heat on this one first.
