Dave Omak has the science. There is alot going on between pit and smoke box. When certain storms or fronts coming through, wind comes in on back side, from southeast here, low pressure system from north or west. Counterclockwise rotation. Since I moved smoker , and 4 smokes , happened twice. First time I messed with it and finaly got it going. Never thought myself it would be such a science. Just stay tuned on this forum and getting there.

May be able to find a fine line to use them both at once.
Been thinking in them lines. At this moment, just cold smoke
