Mine are 1", I believe most people use 3/4". One intake is probably not enough - I have 3, and usually shut one down once the pit is going and have one wide open and the other I adjust with a ball valve. I normally cook at higher heat - usually around 300. It's probably worth mentioning that my exhaust is 2" pipe with an elbow (always open), since exhaust figures in to air flow & pit temps.
