I've been using Wicked Good Charcoal in my Egg for a year or so. I love it, but it takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r for it to come up to temp (And BGE charcoal takes a long time too). By that I mean well over an hour to get to 400 deg. (It's been 40 mins tonight and it's only 150 deg). I use a 1 inch firestarter cube.
I'm thinking of going to electric start unless someone has a better idea. If I do go electric (reluctantly), is there a really good brand or are all the major brands decent? Wondering whether to spend $15 at Home Depot or pop for the $24 Green Egg version.
