I honestly don't know what the benefit of the butterfly valve is. My Party has the standard chimney valve. It simply slides/rotates to cover my chimney exhaust. I have no complaints.
Here is a picture of a Party w/ the butterfly valve and a Chubby w/ the standard valve.

I have the butterfly and I would probably prefer to have the standard chimney valve. The butterfly is harder to clean and I believe it they both work the same....

My Competitor came with the butterfly (didn't know it was an option). I always leave it wide open, so if I had an otion, I wouldn't order it. When I did try and close it, all I got was leakage around the door. So I'm thinking of removing it and putting on a chrome smoke stack just to spruce it up a bit.
