Unless you're comfortable cooking there.  Each drum will have it's own personality and if you're happy with it, smoke on.




The exhaust has a damper, so I will try closing it up a bit.

The pipes are my extended air intakes. I origanally had only one extended 3/4" and it seemed like I had air flow problems. I added the second and made it 1" and it seemed to work better. I am going to try closing the exhaust damper down a bit like Dave suggested.
