Changed the stack to be longer inside(if this works i will relocate to the side) i still need to work on the diffuser. I have not tried these mods. Yet so i need to do the diffuser and try it.
Steve I have the same pit as the one pictured in this post. I did the mods sans the 1/4' plate and I can run 225 for 5 hrs. +- 7 front to back end to end the only thing that I did different is I made a lid gasket out of HD Aluminum foil.
take some pictures of your fire box and cook chamber and post them.If we can see your pit we can probably get her fixed.
