Ok, i got tired of holding my map torch at the lump until it lit, and figured out a new way with my hi-que grate. Just lite from the bottom like a chimney starter.
I put the torch in, and lock it in place with the screen door. I'm not brave enough to walk away, but it is nice not to get sparks jumping at me.

  • Lump bill is gonna go up some. When I got my first egg the dealer told me to light it by sticking newspaper under the fire ring. Lit fast but burned up a lot of lump.

    Would placing one or two of the lighter wafers in the bottom of the Egg through the air inlet get things going through the vent holes in the cast iron coal grate, or would the iron dissipate too much heat to allow the charcoal to ignite?  Has anyone tried it?
