- Do you use the vents on the top and bottom to regulate temperature at all or just as a heat release as you mentioned in the video!

BTW, great use of an old grill...looks like the cooker fit right in to the space! Great job!
Water pan is about 4 inches over fire box allows for indirect heat plus adds moisture.smoker maintains heat for about an hour. I add about 25 briquetts and fill water pan.I use vents mainly for reduceing heat.I get plenty of air from below.Thanks for the response guys. I' still tweaking it. doing spare ribs today.
