Trust me on this. I did not think it made that big of a difference until I tried it.
The trailer hitch end too far down will make the smoke/heat harder to flow from back to front and then to back again.
The trailer hitch end too far up will cause the smoke/heat to stall in the front.
If you don't believe me, try it. It doesn't take but about 30 minutes to see the difference.
Great point, this is true with my pit as well. I always carry a level with me.
