Temp Limit - Humidity??

I live in South Florida and the humidity down here is in the 90% range this time of year. Earlier this year (winter and spring), I could get my egg up to 900 F. Now, I can only get about 600 F.[p]THe fire box is clean and I am using new lump. Could the humidity level be limiting my fire temp? If not, what do you think could be the issue? I would like at least 750 for my high temp searing.[p]By the way, I've had my egg for 9 months and I've gained about 15 pounds. Ouch![p]Thanks,

    Fisheyes, I live in pembroke pines, so far no trouble getting the hi temps for searing. Could be used lump which doesn't always reheat to 700. I've had mine since june, and always add some fresh to the old stuff.

    take a hair dryer and blow in that bottom vent. you'll get the temp. but god is tell'in you to cook on lower temps, stuff like fish. I like that myself but it doesn't beat a great steak seared at 700.
    do well, stay healthly
