I know this has been discussed ad infinitum, but was wondering if anyone had tried lighting the coal in the front only (by the handle) for low and slow cooks. Was thinking this might have a smaller flame front as it would move across the coal rather than going out in all directions as a center light does. I am going to try it on my next slow cook to see if it will help maintain a lower temperature more easily. It might also somewhat compensate for the hot spot at the back of the Egg.
