Thank Eddie i’ll take pictures print out and laminate. It will come in handy. I don’t use my KK as much as most of the people here. 

Yeah I like it easy to set for low and slow I’ll try the coconut charcoal this week. I need to cook a couple of Boston butts.  I haven’t filled my cabinet yet still waiting for my cover from Dennis but when I do I post some pictures. Bruce you have 2 KK am I right?

Here are my test results on right vent holes. I started with a clean Komodo and a full basket of Rockwood charcoal.At 5 am I lit the Komodo with my torch to a softball size pile.I then brought it up to 200 quickly just to make sure coals where going good. I then closed the top vent to a 1/4 turn that’s where the top stayed thru the whole test. Starting with the smallest to the largest hole ran the first whole for 4 hour 168 degrees after an hour it settled at 168 for three hours.Then second hole 1/2 hour to get to  198 degrees held solid for 2 1/2 hours.third hole 1/2 hour to get to 223 then held solid for2 1/2 hours. Forth hole 1/2 to get to 252 held solid for 2 1/2 hours.  Fifth hole 1/2 hour to get to 277 and held solid for 2 1/2 hours. I used a Thermoworks smoke probe the I place on top of the thermometer probe and wrapped it with a piece of stainless steel wire. Hell of a long test but for low and slow right side vent seems to be the ticket left side for grilling and baking. This was done on a B.B. 32. I hope this helps you all.

Your kind of up early on your day off, I understand...your a man on a mission. 5 a.m. for me is only for a fishing date other than that these eyes ain't opening. Really good work, a test I see that involved effort and planning and you have my congratulations. So without delay and dubious deserved merit I confer upon you EddieMac the highest honor ever bestowed upon another within the cooking world.....the visitation of any house within the KK Kingdom and to sit and break bread, meat and more...yes you can bring the wife. Your diploma is in the mail. Three thumbs brother

Hey Eddie, just wanted to thank you for your experiment.  I put a brisket on last night before bed and decided to try the third hole on the right and 1/4 turn of the top vent.   I checked it this morning at 6am and it was 226.   Easy enough!   Thanks again.

Doing a picnic shoulder about 9llbs right now. Decided to use that side also, did some tweaking and played around to run around 250. I have the 23 so you'll have to come over and run the test for the 23 crowd to see if there are any significant changes. Don't forget to bring beer, ha ha just kidding...my well never runs dry
