Hi Animal, I just ordered a 36 deluxe, with the cook chamber to warming box vent deleted, and then added the dual vents over the firebox instead.

Questions...

Since I wont have the vent from the cook chamber in the way, Im thinking of having Lang lower my drip tray away from the lower rack, like 1/2" above the block off plate handle, or the vent flaps when the are open (whichever is taller?) - Do you see any downside to doing this?

With the firebox vents, are you able to get the warmer up to 250ish without losing your draft, or drastically affecting the main cooking chambers temp?

Thanks for the help!

I hardly ever use the smoker to warmer box vents, I mainly use the firebox to warmer,  it is doing the same thing except I can really ramp up the temp, there is a gap of about 3/16 around the vents anyway for clearance so they can turn so even when closed I get heat and smoke. You will be fine, I have never really measured how hot I can get the warmer but I can keep it cooler for holding food or open them up and I can see the fire so I can get her pretty hot

Perfect, I think I will be happy without the cook chamber to warming box vent. since that vent wont be in the back of my warming box, I was considering lowering the drip pan to about 1/2" above the firebox vent blockoff plates handle. That way I can get to the drip pan easier even if I am cooking on both racks in the warmer. Your thoughts on this?

Thanks for your help!

I thought there was a drip pan, directly below the lower grate, in the warming box? I guess not?

Ah ok, Another member just sent me a pic of his, and it has a drip tray under the lower rack. I guess I wont bother with it, I will just see what it has in it when it arrives... Thanks!

Do they operate independently or do both have to be either opened or closed?
