What is the absolute, 100 percent, fool proof, no fail procedure for lighting the coals to maximumize low and slow cook times ...[p]or at least a "really good" method ;-)[p]Here what I would normally do:[p]1. Stir my old lump to remove most of the ash.
2. Clean out the fallen ash.
3. Use an electric starter to get a small amount of lump going.
4. Put in the rest of the lump and get it fairly level.[p]Will my method work? Does it need tweaking? Whats your favorite way to start up the lump for an 18 hour pork -a- thon.[p]thanx
