From my testing:

Above 50 degrees ambient outside air temp. I use the 2 1" gas valves open full until target temp is reached. Then I will close them to maintain said target.

Below 50 degrees ambient outside air temp I will open the Middle 1" pipe. I have also built an adapter to fit a small heat gun to power draft the fire. I will boost the fire to 275 and let it slowly drop at times if the outside temp is below 50.

These are rough numbers only.

I just received my first power draft controller that I am going to try on Thursday. If anyone wants to come check it out PM me.

Talking adapt and over come

Just finished the adapter for my power draft controller. I am surprised I didn't have to break out the duct tape...

Have you thought about rigging a hand truck and other wheels to the back of it. So maybe you could tip it and roll it on its back? Very impressive by the way.

I have thought about different ways of moving it around. I think when I build a new trailer this spring I will make some room for it on there... We shall see.

A little 20* cooking today... The Auber power draft controller worked well after I plugged in the temp probe in the right way...

Very impressive tower! Great use for those old server boxes! Do you have any plans for the vents in the top?

No plans for the vents I used 2 out of the 3 it had on. I just cover it with tarp when there is a chance of rain.
