I have had my EGG for just about two years and I keep on learning something new all the time. I understand that after lighting the EGG you want to get rid of the bad smoke. How long do you let the EGG go until you start cooking, lets say steaks or chicken, and you are not going to smoke them ? Is there a "clean" smell after clearing the bad smoke ? Or does it depend on what kind of Lump charcoal one is using, like oak ? I do know that mesquite charcoal has a distinctive smell.
