Essentially all the twigs are kept right below flash point - open it longer than 10-15 seconds and flames are coming out the top of the barrel. As such I have considered using a diffuser (including a butterfly baffle - to limit the uds turning into a burn barrel.

Why do I open it too long? takes a while to load chicken quarters.
That's a great point. Thanks for the info!
