Another option for a replacement ring. buy a $10-$20 piece of expanded metal, and make your own high flow ring.
Tomorrow I will be running the test. It's very possible that you are correct and it's a non-issue. I hope so, that would be great. I feel very confident with lump and temp control. This is a new cooker to me though and I hope to have her dialed in as soon as possible. I appreciate the feedback. Why does Weber advise against lump charcoal in the manual? I love lump.
