My take on this is that airflow in the egg is going to always tend to go upward. If you are using the wire ring, then the outside holes on the grate may contribute to the fire, but if you are using the solid-wall reducer I don't think the air would go up 3 or 4 inches then back down to feed the fire.Plano_JJ said:I see what your saying but wouldn't the air that is coming in around the reducing ring still feed the fire even though it is not coming up strictly through the charcoal? I would think the more air the better. I am asking because I don't know.
