The front side of the fire box opens up. I have no problem keeping it at the right temp now. Finding wood to burn is a whole separate issue though.

Glad to hear you got it cooking good. One suggestion is to put firebricks in the bottom of the firebox and up the side a bit, it will help keep the metal from rusting away and can help elevate a grate to get air under the fire. Remember that ashes + water = acid so keep the ashes clean between burns.

I have a rack in the smoke box for the wood, and the vent on the end i cut in is underneath the rack.
