I already have a ball valve on one of the 3/4" intakes. Honestly, I think it is just a matter of starting with way less pre-burned coals to start. Then I should be able to leave the exhaust open more. Going to try on my next cook.

My design is pretty much as simple as they get and I have not tried to reinvent the wheel here. I appreciate the feedback Razr.

Put the pipe in there so you have an easy way to close your drum up from the elements and to snuff the fire when your done. Secondly the stack will increase your draw and produce better flow and without stale smoke from capping the exhaust...
