Loaded up the egg with Royal Oak, put in my weber cube and lit it. Waited about 5 minutes, stirred up the coals. Waited a few more minutes. No flame in sight, the coals were white but zero fire whatsoever.
So, I closed the vents to extinguish what little heat I had in the egg, which took all of 7 minutes. I emptied my whole egg from top to bottom and removed all dust. Yes, there was a ton - 1st time I've emptied it since owning it. I assumed this was the problem, since minimal air was getting to the flames.
Loaded up the egg with the charcoal again, essentially starting over fresh. Threw on the weber cube, and after 10 minutes, same result - very weak fire (no more than 200*). Holes in the fire box were clean, and the only thing I could possibly think of was that I had quite a few small pieces of lump at the bottom of the pile of charcoal in the egg.
Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated - thank you!
