The commercial vertical smokers all have a grate at the very top of the smoker, so they need the dome lid to provide room for the food.

IMHO I dont think a flat lid will make any difference.
Some people are like Slinkys, they are good for nothing but can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

Down to one lonely ol' Bandera.
