I read many threads on this subject myself before I built mine, including this one (well i read about the first 50 or so pages then scanned the rest). I ended up going real simple for my first build and followed this thread: http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=43943
As for your holes, I assume you meant intake not exhaust. Most everyone has 2 or 3 intake holes and caps off all but 1 when cooking most of the time. The idea is that the extra 2 holes help bring the UDS up to temp when starting, then when up to temp they are capped and the 3rd normally has some sort of valve to fine tune the temp. On occasion when higher temps are needed one or two of the intake holes can be un-capped.
