Thanks to everyone that populates this forum - I've been reading threads to prepare myself for my first go round with my brand new egg this evening (just some chicken breasts and veggies to get a sense of regulating the temperature in advance of some cooking tomorrow)[p]My one question is about the electric starter - perhaps I am just brain dead here, but you just open the lid and stick it in there with charcoal on top and beneath it for about 8 minutes? Is the heating ring supposed to be on an angle like that? Is it supposed to rest on something? What am I missing?[p]Thanks in advance to everyone, and look forward to cooking on learning about my new egg from all of you.
