Personally, my rig would run too hot wide open all the time. If I add splits to the fire and the smoke gets thick I usually open the vents all the way to get a clean burn going again the very gradually close them to 1/4 open to maintain 250 - 275. I found that if I shut them down too fast that tends to give white smoke sometimes.
