Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. 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?
