We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Dome Temp / Grill Temp & Lighting Question

I just received a BGE for a wedding gift and had a couple quick questions. 

1st question

When lighting the charcoal for a long smoke (12-14 hours) what are some tips I should follow?  How much to fill? Should I light only one side of the egg and let burn opposite way or just light in the middle?

2nd question

How fat off is the dome temp from the grill temp?  If I want to smoke at around 230 where do I need to be at for dome temp?
