I opted to drill eight 1" holes (No Hot Spots)
I got rid of plastic at bunghole and air hole.
I put metal plugs in those.
I took 1 1/2" long X 3/4" steel pipe and screwed on an end cap.
I drop one of these in each exhaust hole when not in use.
When I get ready to shut down my fire, I close my Intake pipes at the bottom of the drum with caps, and close the one valve
and drop plugs into the holes. Fire is smothered out quickly.
