Can you explain why?

I'm going to have two holes drilled for probe access next week when I have new exhaust added. Drawing upon everyone's experience, is there a preferred location?

That sounds like a good idea. I'd go right under the door.

I just ordered door seal and plan on droping the grate in the fire box to 3". I'm looking into getting a bbq guru for the back side of the fire box instead of installing another damper. Does anyone have experience with a guru? And do you think this will help with the air flow problem? Any and all advice is welcome :) Thanks!!

I've heard good things about Horizon pits. Hope you enjoy it!

I'm adding some seal to my door today. Regardless of the Guru or not, I think you're going to have to get a larger exhaust.

Unless your damper actually covers the stack like a cap with sides coming down over the stack (or you cover the entire cooker with a water proof cover) you will still get some water down the stack.

Added a 6" exhaust today and couldn't wait to get it home and fire her up. Works like a charm! no problem getting up past 300 and all of a sudden I don't have the heat and smoke bellowing from the door. THANKS FOR THE HELP!

NEXT QUESTION: Instead of throwing away the 3" stack I added it to my warming box. As of right now the warming box receives indirect heat from being on top of the fire box. If I want to turn the warming box into a vertical smoker for smaller cooks what ideas do you guys have have for an opening between the two?

Looks great guys!! I'm excited to get my pit up to them to have them fix it now.

@boiler93; I was thinking that the larger exhaust would help fix all the smoke leaking because now the smoke has a logical place to go, and I am glad to hear that it is working as it should.

I'll make sure to post pics as well when we get ours fixed up.

Glad it's working! I plan to cook this weekend when I get home from travel.
