That's a trippy pattern you have in your top door. :D

Nice work on your cabinet and the controller and charting ... can you post some details about the Pi Smoker in the controller section of this forum ?

How hot does your drip pan get with the pellet pot underneath ?

I run a cabinet with three stack vents because I wanted to check out some options for RF as well.

I blocked my top two openings with a copper sink scrubby thing and use the lowest one.

The only time I have noticed a difference in the smoke flavor is when the drip pan gets too hot and the drippings (instead of sizzling sweetly) add a burnt flavor.

Sorry if TMI.

I just did a search for it. looks like a home built program possibly operating on the Raspberry Pi platform. I recommend you PM heatermeter Builder on here and chat with him... he's the guru on that stuff
