High Temp (600+) Burger Cooking
I have never been able to get my egg over 450 degrees and want to sear some burgers (at least I think I do) tonight at 600 or more. I went in to the BGE dealer to buy the electric starter and told him my problem and he said that I am putting too much lump in the firebox, that it shouldn't cover the holes in the firebox. I had always read that people fill the darned thing up right to the top of the firebox, who is right?
If the folks who fill up the firebox are right, how do you get enough air flow to get high up in the temp stratosphere?
