Where to light chrcoal for long cooks?
It must be just me but last night I had the temp steady for hours at 250 degrees. I placed the fire sticks close to the top when I started the fire as I know many people do. When I got up this morning the dome temp was at 130. It's now back up to 250 and going fine.[p]I seem to be having trouble keeping the fire going unless I get the fire going near the bottom of the lump. Should I just start lighting it that way or do any of you have any suggestions?[p]Thanks, Frank
