I agree that evenly spaced holes are the best convection. With my set up, 3 half inch pipe nipples for intake, my drum will not get much hotter than 250*. That works fine for most anything I'm cooking. If it needs to get hotter than that, just remove the threaded bungs. 375* is almost instantaneous.
