I have lived in Florida for over 50 years, been grilling for over 40 years and I have never seen anything like it when I lifted the cover on my poor neglected egg.johnkitchens said:This is why I no longer cover mine. http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1168788/gross/p1
In one of my earliest post I mentioned this phenomena. The vent settings depending on season, temp, humidity, IN MY EXPERIENCE have an effect.
Of course wind speed has a major effect for me, as I am not sheltered from the wind like some. It can be calm or windy when I start the cook and will need to be changed sometimes if the wind dies or comes up.
Again IN MY EXPERIENCE, someone's vent settings in Texas will be different than mine up in Central Canada. I remember a post that someone never has their DFMT on and only adjust with his loser vent. I cant get below 350 that way.
In either case I am a firm believer that weather and climate have an impact day to day on the settings of the egg.
I just got my Mini about a year ago. For twice the price of what I paid for my mini the MM isn't worth it for me.
If it were closer in price I might pull the trigger.
With the firebox being off, seems they just wanted to save some mold development costs and use what was already available.
