It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

I use the stainless and never move back to the old cap...stuffs just as good as the ceramic top imo...and i never have a time where the vent settings adjust because I upended the lid. ..well worth it to me.
If it were a low and slow I'd clean it out to start with Max airflow...but I don't do a full clean out for a couple hour cook... +1 @DMW comment...another variable would be if you did a full scoop out before the 8 hour butts.
