Default Using a diffuser.....be carful

Well, I started using a diffuser in my drum smokers and have been very happy with the results. One thing I have noticed, however, is a build up of the grease in the bottom of the drum. I guess it goes on the sides and not not directly into my coals. Anyway, while cooking a bunch of ribs yesterday I took the lid off to remove them and kept the lid off while the coals were still going. While coming back outside I had a friggin inferno coming out of my drum. I mean flames hot enough to destroy my thermometer, etc.

My point is I'm constantly learning all the time in barbecue and yesterday was no exception. Please be careful when using a diffuser. And NO....no pics are available...my heart was racing far too fast to think about pics...
