damper in firebox

  1. I have a question about putting a damper in my firebox to help control the temp. my firebox is 24" x 24"x  24" with a fire basket to hold wood and charcoal. is this a good idea or not. I control my temps now by adding enough wood or charcoal to keep the temps between 275 & 300.

    Thanks

  3. Thanks, I do have two air vents in the firebox one on each side opposite the door. I will just close them off as needed to control the temps.

    thanks

    Read this post and look at the vents on the door in post 4, you may want to add a smaller vent directly across from the opening into the cook chamber to help move the air along its way, it seems to give better overall control.
