Last night I fired up the Egg for hot dogs. I had plenty of leftover lump from the previous cook so I just used that. There were no VOCs, it heated up pretty quickly and I was cooking at 450 in maybe 10 or 15 minutes![p]The big revelation for me was that I could cook other stuff too, just as long as I've got a firebox with enough leftover lump and I'm cooking something at 450 or less. the time it takes to get from start to cook was a fraction of the usual time.
