Welcome to the forum.

What makes you think that the black smoke on pull away is related to the EGR valve?

I take the EGR valve off and clean it with carb cleaner.

If the EGR stuck open it would pass hot exhaust gas into the intake manifold under all load conditions whereas it should only do so under deceleration and very light loads, and it would have a negative impact on performance. If it stuck closed you wouldn't tell the difference, just might generate a code and you wouldn't pass inspections.
