Leave the top vents wide open and control the heat with the bottom air flow. If you're doing an indirect smoke, build the fire on one side and put your meat on the other side. Turn it occasionally to expose all sides to the heat. That's my $0.02. Joe

Try a coffee can or tongs. Does your grate have any lift up sides? You need to get a chimney. They come in handy for several things.

Have you watched this?

Looks to me like a really nice set up, walls a bit thin but it shouldn't bother you.

 

2 lower & 2 upper vents

adjustable grill

Ash tray

Warming rack

Side shelf

Lots of room in the chamber

Front opening charcoal access

Heat resistant handle

 

I suggest you open one bottom and one top vent on opposite sides of the smoker, fives you flow thru and you direct the heat and smoke.

 

I recommend you get an Ash/charcoal shovel. I still use these and couldn't imagine trying to grill/BBQ/smoke without one. It will make reloading that charcoal tray simple.

Thats a good start.

Did you watch the Youtube? You pull the grates, and set the chimney on the charcoal tray to get it going.

Fire starters? If no chimney, you stack a pyramid of charcoal and use charcoal lighter. Some swear it leave a residual taste, I never have seen it, although I allow my chacoal time to burn it all off before cooking.

 

You can buy a cheap electric loop that works well

I'm gonna be straight up with ya ... I've tried to use this "grill" a few times for a low and slow smoker.. it just doesn't work... If you look between the lid and the body when lid is closed there is close to a 1/4" gap all the way around...

It works GREAT as a GRILL .. I don't think you could ever stop all the air leaks to be able to control temps. ..
