All three vents open to bring it up to temp then cap the two and run the one with the ball valve all the way open. With the valve open my temp gauge says 275, if I close the valve halfway the thing will damn near burn itself out. I'm trying to get the lower temps for the longer cooks but it just won't happen. Any tips?
Guessing you checked your exhaust vent to make sure it was open enough to create a draft. Anything physically blocking the intake? Ash? junk in an intake nipple?
