Temp Control

I've had my egg for about 2 weeks now and I'm lovin' it! I can tell that there's definately a learning curve to get anywhere near an egg-spert, but that's the case with everything worth while! I've enjoyed reading the collective wisdom here on the forums too.

I've been pretty successful with temp control, but I was wondering about some of your approaches. So far, I 've been doing most of the adjustment with the lower vent, leaving the daisy-wheel mostly open at temps over 300, and closing it only when I've got the bottom vent within 1/4" - 1/2" open.

My thought is that it seems better to keep the top open further than the bottom so as not to restrict the airflow at the top, keep the air moving through the egg. However, I seem to be going through lump faster than everything seems to indicate I should. Could this be why?

Or, am I just totally overthinking this?

Thanks!
