This one its actually easier to just open the lid that to try to get vent set back in the right place again if your only gonna have it open for a second, the dome temp only drops a couple degrees and it stabilizes again in a minute or so.
Cooking low on this the vents only open about an 1/8 inch or so and once you get it dialed in it doesnt take much to be a real pain in the butt to reset it, its kinda touchy if you go a little bit to far one way or the other.
