I'm just thinking, how about if the fire box and cooking chamber were separated enough to have an adjustable blow off vent in-between?
I'm 100% for exploration and trying new things but considering the size format of these tanks and the complexity, plus the "unknown" factor of exhaust vents and so forth IMO you would be better served by designing your firebox to optionally burn smaller quantities of charcoal. You can do this with a smaller charcoal basket or as I mentioned earlier a large bean can or some other container. It's a lot easier and less expensive playing with different size cans / baskets than finding out the exhaust vent system doesn't work as expected... plus you're conserving fuel.

I like jess's idea of turning the tank (cooking chamber) vertically to hang your pork belly, sausage links, ribs or whatever.
