Just to chime in on this - I have also been wondering about exhausts and how they impact the temperatures.

I have 3 x 3/4" exhausts and the big 2" exhaust. To date, I have been keeping the 3 x 3/4" closed and just using the 2", but I am wondering if this is actually the wrong thing to do.

I will experiment, but just wondering what other folks do with the flat lids that have the 2" hole.
