guys,

when your temp is running too high (like when you re-fuel and the temp goes up), do you open the cooking door (for 5-15 seconds) to drop the temp or do you pull the dampers back a bit and wait till the temp comes down?

I think the key is learning your smoker and knowing how often you need to add a log to maintain the temperature. For me, if I add a log every 40 minutes, my temp doesn't move.
If you find yourself in a situation where you have added too much fuel to the fire, the only thing you can do is take away some of the oxygen that is feeding the fire. So, yes, you would need to cut back on the pinwheel dampers.

cool man.  i've always read about not opening the cooking chamber unless you have to (to add/remove food or baste, etc).  its probably just a bad idea overall. i just wasn't thinking in the heat of the moment and my dumbass didn't think to just be patient and cut back the dampers.

about two weekends ago i felt like i made a giant leap in learning my smoker.  and this past weekend i made some food that just KILLED (chicken and a pork loin).  ive used it every weekend since i got it and you're right, the more i use it, the more comfortable i get with it.    

its cool how the thing will stay on temp too.   ive been enjoying it so much i actually gave my gas grill to my brother and cleaned my other 2 grills with some soap and water and put them in the garage. coming soon to a craigslist near you? haha
