That also looks like you added expanded metal between the chambers , is that to keep the coal in the fire chamber???

I used high temp silicone (red) to make a gasket around the door on mine. Made a huge difference, along with lowering the exhaust to grate level and the firebox end baffle plate. By the time I sold mine and bought a much bigger unti, it cooked pretty good, although it was still a fuel hog.

Here's some more. For charcoal in this unit I have found that Royal Oak lump works the best. Wicked Good, my normal fuel, burns way too hot for this cooker. I light the fuel with a half chimney of hot charcoal and dump that onto a chimney of unlit in the basket. Intake is half open and stack is fully open. Cooker gets up to temp, smoke clears up, meat goes on. Not sure about the timing of all that. After about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, I push all the hot and almost spent fuel over towards the smoke chamber and pour more unlit beside it on the vent side. Get at least another 3 hours of heat. Works for me.

I've been using lump till now, know what you fellers mean by a "fuel hog" but it's my first stick burner and i have learned a hell of a lot on that pit, made some damn tasty food in there!!!, sooner or later i'll find a design for something a little bigger and make my own, till then this is it!!! my masterbuilt electric smoker wannabe just isn't the same!!!!
