Jim I got your email and hopefully you got my response. Here it is for everyone else:
I have experienced that sweating on a pit with a flat top before. It wasn't pretty. Dripped nasty soot down all over my food. It was on a pit that I rebuilt and it had never done it before. I sold it before I got to cook on it again, but I think it was the water I had in the bottom of the pit as I had rebuilt it to hold water in the bottom part of the pit to provide even cooking. I haven't experience that with this pit though. Season the pit well and I doubt you will have any issues.
Each pit I've made cooks differently but this one is my favorite. It has lots of room and puts a very light smoke on the meat. It has one little hot spot where the heat curls in at the top from the reverse flow plate, but the rest is so even, it's pretty darn cool.
