I've owned my LBGE for one week now. Cooked steaks one night and burgers another night on direct heat. I decided the other night to cook chicken thighs over indirect at 375 for an hour or so. I found that when getting my egg up to temp with the plate setter in it took what seemed like for ever. I am using a firestarter and lighting it in the middle of the bed of lump coal. I had a decent flame going after a few min before i put my plate setter and grill in. Its this common because the platte setter is in restricting air flow through the egg needed to get the coals going? Any advise would be great. The forum is awesome and has been great in getting started.
