Anyone cut a vent hole in the top of the firebox to
Let more heat into the warmer? If so post some pics!

You can see them in this picture. There is a handle on either side of the firebox to adjust them, I use them a lot, it also came with a steel plate to block them off when I dont want to use them.

Thought about getting this option, guy at Lang talked me out of it.

One thing I'm curious about. Opening those vents has to take heat away from main smoker cooker.... has to.  If you were JUST going to use the warmer to cook a steak or whatever in the warmer box, I could see the uses.

I crack them open for a lot of things I want cooked in the warmer, corn ,brats even lasagna. you can also control the heat loss by closing the top vents on the warmer. I love having them. It gives me more options. I can run the cooker at 225 and cook any temp I want in the warmer. Closing them off completely is what the metal plate that sits on top of the vents is for.

He stated the box runs fine without it and said you could cook out of it too...he didn't as much talk me out of it as he did just stating how perfect it worked without the mod.  come to think of it.

I'm not sure what temp you can get the warmer up to without that mod, but I'd guess if you open up both vents on top of the box wide open and close off the chimney on the main cooker, you can get temp up there?

So are you happy with firebox mod? Does it cause any issues in regards to heat loss.
