You are right that a little tweak of the ball valve can make a huge difference. I don't go to bed until I have it dialed in. If you don't pop the lid every 20 minutes these drums have a temp that they want to run at. Mine is about 250 but I have made others that seem to prefer 220 or 275. Glad you worked that out about the chimney.
