I have a removable lid and was going to poke exhaust holes instead of making a stack. Will my coals burn out if I have no way to cover the exhaust holes?
Yes and yes. Put as much coal in as you like- you can snuff em out when you're done cooking. However you will need to cover your exhaust vents to snuff out the fire. I personally have a 2" stack on mine with threads so I can use a pipe cap, but I've seen some folks use pipe plugs to close the holes in their lids. Either way you gotta do somthin to cover the vents as`well as close the intake to stop the burn.
