Thanks for the tips! I appreciate it. Any more, just let me know. Just curious, what do you use to scoop out the ashes? I'm thinking about buying the Weber ash scoop. Also, what do you use to tap the ash off the coals, or do you never do that?
I was also thinking about getting the IQ110 for it. Is it really needed? I love the idea of 'set it and forget it.' http://www.amazon.com/IQ110-Kit-Standard-Pit-Adapter/dp/B00A7F1B60

Thanks! What adjustments do you usually make? How far open do you keep each vent on the 3 bottom vents and top vent? That's what I like about the IQ110. Close all bottom vents the fan isn't attached to, open the top vent full open, and dial in the temperature on the IQ110 you want. 225° is the norm, I read.
Any tips you guys have for me, I'd greatly appreciate it. :)
