I picked up my xlBGE yesterday after getting it assembled I cooked some wings and they came out great. It does take longer than on the webber but the quality is second to none. Tonight I am trying Dr BBQ meatloaf. I am having trouble getting the temp down below 300 degrees. I watched it carefully comming up. I realized later that instead of starting a single fire I broke the starter block into 3 sections so I started 3 fires instead of one. I have the vents closed down I was worried I would put the fire out. About a half inch open on the bottom and half closed on the top. I am amazed that it stays going solid on 300 for almost 2 hours. Should I close them more or just start s single fire tomorrow? I want to try ribs then. Of course this tropical depression is supposed to move through tomorrow also.
