Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

My minion method - burns forever

I use a 4" x 12" 'pipe' to contain a bit of fresh lump and hit it with my heat gun.   If using a soft lump such as RO the gun takes less than 40 seconds to get it blazing. 

Doing it this way really contains the fire to a small cone that will run L & S forever if the vents are choked down properly.  You do have to have the bottom vent open 25% more for the same temps vs lighting a much larger area of the fuel load.
