How to you start your egg - Add on question.

I have heard of two basic methods:

Method 1. Throw lump in, light it on top/few coals down. The fire burns from the center/top through the bottom of the lump and outward. 
Method 2. Light up some lump in the chimney and throw it in the bottom of the egg against the fire grate. Then throw fresh lump on top so the fire burns from the bottom up. Or just light some lump on the fire grate with paper towel/start cubes and then fresh lump on top once the coals are going.

What do you guys say as to these two methods or other methods?
