For those that drilled holes only, how hot are you able to get it to go? I am also in the process of building one. Although I plan to use it mainly for low and slow, I would like to occasionally run it at 300-350 temps. Can I do that without cutting out the bottom (drilling holes only) and using the bottom of the pot itself as the diffuser?
