    I always cook with the lid off. Except when I always cook with the lid on.

    It may just be me but I find that if I grill sub 20 minute items with the lid on that I lose a lot of heat that doesn't come back up when lifting and replacing the lid to turn. Therefore I tend to cook a bit more with lid off.

    Why do you feel that you don't get the same heat after removing the lid? Shouldn't the allowance of more oxygen allow for the coals to burn hotter and return to the heat you are seeking? Genuinely curious here.

    I don't grill with the lid off. My wife likes her steak seared but not burned on the outside so I avoid flare ups by using the lid. I cook steaks indirect and then reverse sear once the IT gets to 120-125. Happy wife, happy life.
