I have a temp question. I have a 55 gallon drum with a 2" exhaust. For inlets I have 2 3/4 ball valves and a 1" nipple. When I fire it up it takes forever to get to 220 and then struggles to get much higher. The times I have used it it has been pretty cold (for Texas at least) and windy. I have tried 10 lit coles and 15 lit coles. The last time I hit it with the weed burner for 30sec or so on the edge. Is this a weather issue or should I add another 1" nipple. I would love to hover around 260-275. From reading through this monster of a thread I should be achieving higher temps with just the 2 ball valves open.
