Ok how do you guys and Gals place the bottom fire grate on the egg? The grate has a taper and I have tried it with the taper down and taper up. I find using a wiggle stick disrupts the placement of the grate during a cook. Especially in the mini and this leads to coals gettting into the bottom of the clean out.
It seems with the taper up I have less of a problem.
Does it really matter?
Just finished up some Buffalo wings and 4 breast on the LBGE and had to use a wiggle stick to get the temp up. My fault mostly I just emptied a bag of RO into the egg and loaded it with dust.
Shame on me. As I always say "You remember what causes you the most PAIN."
