How do YOU start your BGE?
While reading through the forums I have noticed a lot of methods are used
for lighting BGEs. I have seen anywhere from torches to paper towels with vegetable
oil on them. So I am wondering what is your preferred method to light your BGE?
Has anyone done any tests on different methods If so what was your results?
As for me I just use a chimney charcoal starter with a piece
of my last bag lump under it. And I just light the paper with a lighter.
