It's a spring return damper that I took off a wood stove. The controller turns on the fan and opens the damper when the temp drops. The damper is otherwise fully closed. Of course it is not completely air tight when closed but enough to lower temps.

So what do your temp swings look like? up 2-5 then back down and back down and back up or what?

I really haven't watched it that closely. I usually give it at least a half hour to settle in (sometimes takes a bit longer). Opening the cover, of course disturbs things and takes a bit to recover.

I usually just check it whenever I happen to walk by and if it has been undisturbed for a while, it seems to stay within a few degrees of the setpoint.

I will pay a little more attention next time.

Thank you. I used hi-temp engine spray paint I got from Pep Boys (and a whole roll of masking tape...and most of a Monday afternoon), they had all three colors in stock. You could probably get away with regular spray paint though, I did several cooks in the drum with the black factory finish and it never got even close to hot enough to melt the paint.

Very nice paint job! I think it would cook better if it were green and yellow with a big"G" on though

I need to light another hot fire in mine to finish burning the original pink paint off. I am going back with good old high temp grill black.

You can get 2000F degree engine paint that will last a while. It's expensive so I just used it on the firebox part of my grill and normal engine paint(650F) for the rest.
