We had a good time with it including JJ's retributions. But here is the real deal. There is no solid set in concrete answer, IMHO. [p]You see, you all (including myself) overlooked all the variables in whether to use a top daisy/slider combo or nothing at all. The variables are, rain, wind, altitude, charcoal types, style of cook, smoking woods, meats, etc.
This is where it gets sticky. Try doing it in a 20 mph wind on a cold day in december without a top daisy wheel. The point is simple. For every cook there is a variable to contend with. And at that point in time, the cook has to make the adjustments.
When ya all get the answer's let me know ...funnin with ya all!!

    I still prefer my brick.[p]You are so right about the rain. I use a conviently broken pot to cover my top w/o restricting the airflow.[p]Mary
