I dunno...I keep mine full open on everything, but some people will say I should adjust it to open just far enough that smoke doesn't back out through the generator on certain items.

Best advice I can give is to keep it open far enough for smoke to not back up into the generator, and open it further when you have foods containing more water (like poultry).
