Did give the element a little tug before the seasoning. Looks like the element is higher on the right side than the left by the way it's sitting. The wood seems to support that too. Glowing embers on the right side, not as much burning on the left. Wood is positioned in the front of the box, centered as close to the elements as I can.
Smoke's not as heavy as it was earlier, but we're going into hour 6 of it running. It's going to be some trial and error to get it right, but that's half the fun. Have fun "learning" tomorrow!
