Everyone else hacked off their exhaust and put a 5 sq inch exhaust closest to the fire box (I'm guessing the builder seen that post because now he got rid of the useless exhaust on the end of the smoker and got a bigger exhaust closer to the fire box) That exhaust the farthest away is pointless on a reverse flow!! Like I said the other intake I installed fixed it mostly but I have the small exhaust. Now the thing cooks like a champ! So if you get the new one you shouldn't have a problem that I can see.
I don't know which cooker you're talking about. ????
