Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

My fires all grow predominately on the back side of my egg (away from the vent)

What am I doing wrong?  Each cook I stir up the old lump and flush the ash through to the bottom. I then add new lump on top and generally use one SureStart Firelighting Square - torn into 4 pieces.  I put one piece at the 12/3/6/9 oclock positions in the lump and light all 4.  Vent open, top open until the fire gets going.  Generally 10 minutes or so.  But inevitably the fire is almost entirely in the top part of the egg away from the vent, even though I also used the starters towards the bottom of the egg (closer to the vent).  What's the deal with this?
