Q: Hi Dr BBQ,
We are designing a BBQ. What’s the best shape for the lid? Domed, cylindrical, flat? It seems most grills have a large rounded lid. Does this help with cooking and smoking?
A: Hi Darren,I prefer a rounded or dome shape. It seems that will create a convection effect. I'm not an engineer, but the cookers I have with a dome shaped lid seem to cook more evenly.
