I will save you a couple hours of watching a grill not do much. It is an insulated cooker. It is going to take hours to come down from 400 to 225-250. 4 hours to drop from 400 to < 100 per JM's video. If you close the top vent to .3 or .5 and the bottom completely it will stay lit and go down to 225-250 but it will take a couple hours to get there (2-3 hours).
