I am getting my first egg in a couple weeks and have a couple questions. After looking over this board for the past couple weeks I'm excited but a little intimidated. The only thing I've ever used in the past is a gas grill so all of the different attachments and techniques are a little overwhelming at this point but the pictures and info everyone posts are great motivation.
1. What type of fire starter should I use?
2. I've seen where people recommend not cooking at high heat at first to avoid burning up the gasket. How will I know when it's ok to fire up the heat to 600 or more? Thanks.
