Default why sear first?

I sear after. It closes the cells that absorb the flavor. smoke first to rear then sear on super hot lid open 3-4 min a side (all depending on thickness) Searing is good if you are going to cook all the way on high heat but when you are smoking you do not have to worry about moisture boiling/sizzling away cuz you are smoking below water's boiling point.
