    The 375° vs 240°might be tough, I admit, but most of the time a 250° difference isn't.

    There is a hole in the floor of the upright (prolly 4" by 6" with a slider over it. There is a slider at the base of the upright on the side to mix cool air if needed, and the top side of the upright has a slider which serves as a stack. the main oven (horizontal tube) feeds on the top, and there's a 7" stack that is located in the middle of the opposite side. The firebox is 24" x half of the 30" tube. With the firebox being as large as it is, there is no problem in firing bothe ovens very hot, and the upright with the water pan in the floor and the floor slider closed will hold 150°-175° even when the horizontal is hitting 400°.

    It is a bit more of a juggling job when you are trying to cook at precise temps and one of them isn' a holding temp like 150°, but it does pretty well for a stickburner.

    Paul, the only thing I've done so far is add an exhaust extension to prevent further discoloring of my patio cover. At this point, temps are holding fairly steady across the horizontal portion. The vertical, however, is running a bit cooler. To be honest, its temp ranges are exactly what I had expected. I use the varying temps to cook different items, depending on their needs. If that makes sense

    It makes sense so long as you don't have a high volume cook that requires even temps across the whole unit.
