Cooking low on this the vents only open about an 1/8 inch or so and once you get it dialed in it doesnt take much to be a real pain in the butt to reset it, its kinda touchy if you go a little bit to far one way or the other.
Humm, I always open the top vent all the way and control the temp with the bottom damper in order to get the cleanest burning fire. You are supposed to use the top vent to damp down the fire on that one?
