With the influx of air, and add the dripping grease, flareups occur and pretty soon, you have a raging fire in your coal basket.

How do you deal with that?
Close your intake vents for 5 mins before you take the lid off, then work as fast as you can, it will help. Try not to have the lid off to long.
