seasoning and cook I only had the vertical open and choked. Held 250
all day and part of the evening..I started at 7:00 am and shut it
down last night at 9:30 pm or so...still had charcoal in the basket!!!!!
I watched a video in the recent past that was linked here in one of the posts about Snail and his drum smokers, I think he has one air intake..looked like it could be around 2" or so.. I went with the 1"
because of the hole saw I had and it's working out well. Before I
shut it down last night I opened all intakes wide open and the temp
reached 475 degrees!!!!! You should of heard the grease sizzling and popping... By the way I like your versions of the drum smokers also..Inspired me along with others...
