Silly question

The vent on top of the smoker. How open do you keep it open? Does various foods mean various openings? Is it ever kept closed while smoking?

Mickey,

To me anyways, never close it all the way, too much moisture build up.  You want to excape that moisture to an extent.  A good rule of thumb would be 1/4 to 1/3, I think any more than than in the typical smoke process maybe too much.  The only time I open'er up all the way is the last hour or so when I cook chicken to help with the results of the skin, also at that time I turn the heat up all the way.

It's not how much you smoke but how many friends you make while doing it...
