I have tried several different brands of lump. I have tried the fire grate with the small side up and the large side up. It seems after a couple of cooks the grate clogs and I have to get my wife's hair dryer out to get any kind of heat out of the egg. Needless to say my wife is not a fan of this and a lot of times we it means we are eating late or are going to be late where ever we go.
What am I doing wrong or what should I be doing to prevent the grate from clogging? I have tried sorting and dumping lump.
