Most of us cook with the exhaust "wide open" but with eight one-inch holes you might lose too much heat. Just close half of them and smoke on. You'll adjust the temperature with the intakes near the bottom. For me that usually means three 3/4" holes open to start, 1.5 holes open for 250 degrees, and 1.25 holes open for 225 degrees. Adjust to suit your drum. I use magnets to cover the intake holes. If you use the magnets with hooks to cover your exhaust (Harbor Freight part #98502), just stick them on the side of the drum while cooking to hang your spatula, fork, etc.
