Yesterday I was using the setup I showed above, and had trouble getting the temps to hold below 300*, and because of that my magnets I was using for vent flaps kinda got stuck to my barrel, so I am wondering what other non weld suggestions there are, I was thinking about the electrical box cover idea, seems feasible but will the concave of the barrel have any neg effects to the vents seal?

Also, on keeping a lower temp, I was running two shoulders, my charcoal basket is 14x8 and 16" tall, bottom of basket is 3" off barrel bottom, any ideas? the basket didnt want to burn evenly, which is why I did more than half a chimney at the beginning.
