Yes, the slider is thermostatically controlled on the ash pan door. It would be some work to add the dedicated outside air supply., which is why I was trying to get a better feel for the results, first. I would probably add the input air "hood" to the lower, side of the stove, and reconfigure the thermostatically controlled damper to that area.
