hi all , looking for some suggestions on how to run cooler in my coldsmoker

doing my first  test run today and its -9 out

currently running between 48 and 50 degrees would like to run 38-42

both top vents open

and bottom vent by smoker is open on 1

 

using a amazing smoker with both ends lit

Mainly for cheese

Anything below 70 is okay for cheese. Only lighting one end may help cool it down.

For future reference, a water pan filled with ice is what I use.
