Lighting a frozen Egg

Went out to light the large Egg for tonight's Flat Iron Steak and the lid was frozen solid.  Wouldn't even budge.  I lit 3 oil soaked paper towels and stuck them in the bottom door.  Waited about 15 minutes, and came out to a fully lit Egg, already at 475 degrees and no bad smoke.  Wasn't sure I had enough lump, but figured it was a quick cook, so I prepped the steak, sprinkled on some Texas Roadhouse Rib Rub and threw it on.  5 - 6 minutes a side and it was at 225 and ready to rest.  Only 40 minutes after finding a frozen stuck Egg, we were ready to eat.  I never lit from the bottom through the vent before, but it worked amazing.
It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.
