    Hitting the point re: restricting air flow...

    The HM is great but one byproduct of pushing air into your pit with a blower is you cause cooling in addition to stoking the fire. If you flow too much air, particularly in cold climates, you might end up fighting the cooling effect, burning more fuel and drying out food as a result.

    The air burner concept was to limit the air flow but focus the air so the fire is stoked quicker with less air pushed into the pit. Thus the small holes that jet out air directly at the fire, less air, but more focused. Hope that makes sense...

    I created the Roto Damper, RD3, HMv4.2 sliding back case, "air-burner" and the "ping-pong" valve in my quest for delicious "set and forget" BBQ.
