I've owned my large for about a month now, and really haven't had a problem starting it. But the EGGcelerator looks like something I could use.
I use the starter squares to light my lump, give it 10 minutes to start, then close the lid. I'm usually up to temp in another 15-20 minutes.
I have both a mapp torch and weed dragon, but the first time I tried the torch, I left spark burns in my newly stained table
So I'm stickin with the squares.
Right now, most of my cooks are short timed... steak, burgers, chicken, tenderloin, etc. But I do love ribs and brisket, so the Guru could be justified.
Can the Guru be used just as a starter, (like the EGGcelerator) without a lot of preparation/programming?
If so, I'll pass until I can swing it instead of the EGGcelerator.
