I know ya'll are about *tired* of me. Got the egg day before yesterday, had a table built and all in place yesterday evening. Decided that before I actually *attempt* to cook on it, I needed to fire it up and play a bit, which I did last night. Wadded up newspaper, placed about 30 chunks on it, left the bottom thingie open and the daisey WHATEVER open...Highest temp I got was MAYBE 220...before it completely fizzled. Decided I didn't have enough paper OR coals...couldn't WAIT to get home from work tonight (EVEN skipped local Happy Hour for this) Used more paper, more coals, and I'll be damned...got up to a WHOLE (Maybe) 140....WHAT AM I DOING WRONG???? I figure, going at this rate, I'll have something cooked on the thing by this time next year. Told the people that hauled my old grill away not to get *too* attached to it!
