I've used this method on mine and it works great. Used about 15, but next cook will cut that down to 10.

I did the exact same but closed up the intake 1/2 way in to my second cook. No humidity in the crisp winter air makes the fuel/air mix on mine too lean = high temps.
Great cooker and great food, nice brisket!
