Does NO gasket = more lump usage?

Since frying the gasket completely off the egg I have noticed that I am burning lump at a much higher rate.  Now this could also because its been colder out.  The vent settings are enev open larger now to achieve the same temps (using a maverick and the dome to show this).

Is it the gasket or the cold temps? 

For example I have loaded the firebox to the top and did a 3 hour cook at 350 last weekend.  Today I checked it and almost all the lump is gone where as in the past I still had at least 1/2 a fire box to go.
