How long it should take to get temperature up to 400 degrees?
I have trouble getting the temperature up to the correct temperature and would like some suggestions. I have checked to make sure the holes are not plugged up. The other night I was making a center loin pork roast and it took over 40 minutes to get the temp in egg up to 350. I started it first and left the top open and the bottom vent open, after about 10 minutes when I see some white charcoal I close the lid with the both the damper top and the slide vent open. What am I doing wrong? Thanks
