We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats
before a baseball game or searing a steak
for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

So, I've been through several iterations of starting the egg. My favorite is to use a weber chimney starter, with paper. That seems to light the quickest. The issue is I end up dropping coals on my table deck when moving from large egg to small. That's not good for anyone!
I read about the veggie oil/paper towel method but I've only been able to apply that method once. It seems not so good, or I'm not doing it right.
I read that fat wood is a bad idea; so now I'm wondering if the starter log stuff is a good idea? Any hints on what to pick up from lowes?
On the plus side the wife has expressed an interest in me tiling the egg table next summer to protect it from me dropping coals on it etc. Which could be awesome.
