New fangled charcoal grate
I've purchased an after market charcoal grate for my LG egg. The picture is below
I'm noticing that I go through coal a lot faster than before but yet I'm not cooking at higher temps or anything. I'm almost at the point of going back to the stock grate. The one thing I'll fess up to is that I am not disciplined about my coal placement. I've read that you should start with large chunks at the bottom, the medium on top finishing with small pieces at the very top. I just dump coal in my egg and go.
Anyone have any input?
