Glad it worked for ya!
I fired mine up yesterday for some butts and fatties, got involved doing 2 other things and before I knew it the drum gauges were pegged at over 700 degrees. Closed it up for 14 mins, came back out, put the meat on, and set my vents to where I figured they should be. (I forgot to cover the lower second inlet and saw bellowing smoke when I looked thru the window ran out and the drum was at 450 degrees). Shut that vent, everything ended up fine. Even with my mistakes every now then that thing turns out some awesome stuff!
