I have a persistent problem when trying to maintain a low temperature for slow cooking.
As an example, I'm trying to maintain a 225 degree temperature, but if the temp starts rising I have to move the bottom and top vents to a nearly closed position which seems to reduce air flow to the point that the coals just start smoking. It smells bad and you can taste it in the food.
How should the vents be adjusted to avoid this result?
