HOW TO REMOVE THE VENT
The top of the stove/brazier (above the opening) has an outline of the vent which is removable. This cutout is approx. 6.5″ long on the top and high and 5″long at the bottom. With a box cutter or sharp pocket knife, cut around the outline of the vent on the top (outline of cut out like a puzzle which is noticeable). Cut inside and outside of the stove 2″ from the top. Wiggle the vent and it will come off. This was done for ease a prevent breakage in shipment.
