    The grease drain is usually closed. Some places don't allow the grease to just drain on the ground. It is also possible that the smoker could suck extra air in through the open valve causing crazy temp swings...JJ

    Mine is a backyard situation, but I leave my valve open when cooking. I have a small bucket that I hang on the valve handle. When I get ready to steam out the cooker after smoking, I add a piece of PVC pipe to the valve and let the greasy water go into the shrubbery.
