    One additional question, will the smoker sustain a low temperature of between 150-160F? If I build it, I would like to use it as a holding oven after the meat is finished cooking.

    Personally, I've had problems with flame-outs below about 175 F cook chamber temperatures. 200 is no problem, but a sustained 175 is risky.

    About 165 is getting pretty challenging imo. Ive done 165-185 for smoking bacon. I have to pinch top vent off halfway or a little more at 165. It all depends on air leakage, and internal air distribution.

    If your coming down from much higher temp, yeah, air may be blocked off long enough it goes out totally when it cools off slowly. I stage my temp drops to prevent that.

    On my 18.5" WSM I can hold 160F with a Heatermeter and Adapt-a-damper without a problem.
