Most of the UDS folks cook with only one intake open. I usually have one intake open about halfway (1" hole adjusted with fridge magnet) to maintain 250-275. As long as I keep the open intake away from prevailing wind, I don't experience any uneven burns. The coals burn from the center, where I arranged my pre-lit coals, to the outer edge fairly even.
