Yes, dwfisk, no air intake vents at the bottom of the fire box. It's just a closed in box, same as the pit I originally had from Santa Maria BBQ Outfitters and foolishly sold awhile back. The air comes in through the top. I've noticed that Arizona BBQ pits have air intake in the front of theirs. I'm going to put some expanded metal on some fire bricks in the corners of the firebox and see what that does tomorrow. I do love the argentine style cooking screen. It's good at keeping flare ups to a minimum.
