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.
