Thanks for the tips guys! I'll have to try those next time I fire it up. I did notice a big jump in temps when I put the wood in the basket too. The coals sat at about 350 steady until I dopped in a couple chunks of wood, then it spike to 450. Do you add wood right away? On top of the lit coals or on top of the unlit coals before adding the lit? (I'm pretty new to charcoal/smoking, - I've been a gasser for years - )

I have eight, 1/2 in. holes drilled on top for my exhaust, these should be sufficient right? (I have the bung holes closed)
