Try closing off one thing at a time until you can make your fire go out.
Stuff the lower intake holes full of aluminum foil instead of the magnets.
My lid does not seal on the rim, and I can kill the fire in mine easy.
If you think it's the lid, roll up some foil and put it around the edge of the lid and jam the lid on.
Find your air leaks and you will be in control again.
if this is for me i havent fired it up yet just burned it out i did put the lid on for a minute or two during burning and no leaks just smoke out of the smoke stach. just experimenting on this one i will post pics later today after painting and finished product.
