    I get very consistent burns with lump. The fire is air limited so the shape variation doesn’t have much impact except when running wide open.

    RK,
    here are my setting for a tightly sealed ceramic grill. I currently use an Adapt A Damper. These should work with some fine tuning for the RD3. The Micro-Damper will not control well on my grill with these settings. I have to make changes mainly to the fan side of things since a blower is a pressure type device and a fan is a cfm type of device.

    P = 2.8
    I = 0.0035
    D = 6
    Fan Output = Voltage
    On Above = 0%
    % min = 0
    % max = 30
    % startup max = 65

    Next item is make sure your thermocouple is not clipped to the grill grates. On my grill, I drop the thermocouple down through one of the dome damper slots and dangle it as close to the center of the dome as I can. I still have a top damper open around a 1/8" depending on the temp I am controlling too. Make sure you have no air leaks. Air leaks are bad. Close the grill with a dollar bill between the gaskets and pull. Must have drag. If not you have a leak. Check all around the grill. Make sure you do not leaks around your inlet damper. Most grills will have a seal of RTV between the inlet damper assembly and ceramic shell. If no seal or it is damaged, fix.
