Default Yoder peeps ver damper position

Last weekend ran some experiments trying to get the bottom shelf to balance out.

With the damper all the way open I could be over 300 on the right side where the left side was registering maybe 220. Closing the damper all the way kept the left at 220 but only dropped the right down to about 280. Was programmed for 210-215. I even tried the recommended closing it about 6 inches and it jumped it to almost be identical to running the damper wide open.

This was with 3 slabs of ribs on the top, 2 briskets on the bottom, and some beans relaxing on the top right so the smoker had some decent meat on it.

What have you found to be the best damper position for even smoking?
