This is very practical advice as it prevent an inrush of air that then stokes the fire.

In a sense, its like a non variable choke plate. But how much choke should be applied. I'm thinking air passages in the choke/diffuser plate should be about 1.5 times the inlet air.

Anybody got something more scientific to go by?
