    tom,[p]Just lite it on top of the lump. Make sure the firebox is full - upto the firering.[p]Disregard the recipe's suggestion of cooking at 200 deg and use 225-250 deg. It will cook a little less but 200 is very very hard to hold over night - the fires go out too easily.[p]Good luck - have fun[p]Tim

    tom,[p]Check out the link to elder ward's instructions. Scroll down to the cooking section, it gives directions for lighting. I hope this helps.[p]Chuck <><
