Looks like you could do the standard mods same as a chargriller.

Lower the exhaust to grate level ( If it is not already )

Put a baffle on the fire box.

Add a charcoal basket

Line the bottom of the smoke chamber with fire bricks for even heat.

Do you do all of your long cooks on this kind of smoker ?

Baffle is something that controls the air flow on to the fire.

can't learn if you don't ask. do you know why controlling air to the fire is important?

I know some guys have a bread pan full of water by the entry from the firebox...but I don't think there is a baffle to control the smoke in to the chamber.

One other thing to consider is the amount of fuel you add to the fire. If you build a big honkin fire you will play heck trying to keep temps down to the levels of low and slow. Start out with 1/2 chimney of lit coals and add to it as needed, using all of the other mods mentioned. It's easier to sneak up on the temp than to lower it after it has gotten too high.

I gave one away after abusing it for several years. Temp control is #1 in my book.
