Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Bad smoke question

It typically takes my egg 30-45 minutes for all the VOC's to burn off and get clean smoke, even if i'm around 350-400 degrees, even when i'm using used lump with a layer of hand-placed lump on top.  Is this typical of everyone else?   Just seems like a longer time than it should take.  I typically start my fires with the "paper towel drizzled with oil" method with a high-que grate.
