Hey guys, long time lurker... I just got an L for Christmas. Very Happy with it, I've wanted one for a long time!
I have successfully done a brisket, a couple of butts and a few chickens so far and it has performed perfectly.
I tried to sear some steaks the other night and couldn't get my heat up to 650. This was disappointing, I never got higher than 550 and went ahead and put them on. They were good, but they were missing that seared crust I was hoping for...
I'm sure it was a user error and more than likely had to do with my lighting procedure; I lit a handful of lump in a chimney and poured it onto my filled firebox. Top and bottom wide open. It just never got screaming hot.
I'm hoping I could get some pointers on how I could build a more efficient fire?
Thanks for the help!
