Reduce the ash, put a good chimney on and bolt in on good. Get a baro and manometer make sure its drafting well, read up on this site. In an outhouse if you can get the auger it will feed gradually reducing the chances of smoothering.
Ive had puff backs with or without the hole open.
Ive been toying with the idea of setting the ashing hyst to 5 vs 10 to reduce the volume added at one time, im thinking more frequent smaller shakes and fills are better.
