Everyone of us that has a fireplace has at times lit the fire with the damper closed and had a room full of smoke occur very quickly. The BGE is also a type of fireplace with an air inlet at the bottom and an exhaust outlet at the top. The incoming air supplies oxygen to the fire; the exhaust is the products of combustion, primarily heated air and smoke. We actually cook in that exhaust. If the top damper is closed as much as possible during cooking while still maintaining the right temperature, then the maximum amount of heat and smoke will be retained and you'll get the most flavor. If it's too wide open, then heat and smoke will be lost that could otherwise add to the cooking process.[p]I'm going to try that principle the next time I fire up the Egg, but I'd like to know what other Eggers think.[p]Jim
