its a weberlike lid. it doesn't fit perfectly around the top, I think i am going to make a foil gasket around it for next time.
I got all vents closed, with foil jammed in all the little holes, and it has dropped to 283 now. so it appears to be on the way down now.
Also, there is no food in it, so if i had a big brisket/butt in there, i think that would absorb some of the heat, to lower the temp a little bit
