Im having trouble with my egg. I get the coals lit but it takes like 20 min to get to 300. Everything is open and it's slow. In fact if I look down the chimney they coals look blazing hot. Also I've tried the eggcellorator but that doesn't speed up the process one bit. What am I doing wrong? I hear people say they are ready to cook at 450-700 in 10 minutes.
The other day I got excited because I cleaned out my coal reloaded and lit. Got to 350 in just 2 minutes. Since that's what I was cooking at I slightly closed the dampers and went to get the food. Came back and it was at 170 or so. Please help. I'd love a video of someone lighting and watching it warm up to temp. Anything would help
