On my WSM I very rarely need mess with top as its full on and bottom I raise or lower. The egg is better insulated may be different. Also I assume in the egg your using lump Charcoal. Lump gets hotter so may need use less. Ribs are cheap and pretty hard to mess up practice with that and regulating heat. Once your dialed in you will know how to vent for desire temps.
My advice is if you want your food to taste good, never restrict the air at the top. He needs to put some thighs on and experiment. not everyone is a pyro by genealogy at .99 a pound, his dog will be a happy camper.
