I'm not complaning, just need convincing.
Probably nothing significant if you are happy with what you are using.

Just my 2 cents, I know nothing about eggs.
Using the combination of top and bottom vent control gives you finer control over the airflow into the cooker. I have read stuff about leaving vents all the way open on top too, but IMO most of them don't hold much water unless you never want to clean out your cooker. The concern is of creosote buildup on the inside of the cooker. That's something you can visually monitor and deal with it if needed.
