Fire Advice for the new girl on the forum
Hi! We've had our Egg for about a year now and I LOVE it! I grew up using charcoal grills but my husband always used electric (boring). I talked him into buying the BGE when our electric one rusted out (we live between the intercostal and ocean). Anyway, long story short, he couldn’t get the hang of it and handed the grilling over to me - yippee! I have been having a lot of fun trying all your suggestions and recipes. [p]My problem tho' is getting the fire going... I know this must sound crazy to some of you. I am using 100% natural lump charcoal and fire starters. The fire starts up well, but if I don’t fan the bottom opening a lot, the fire dies out. What am I doing wrong?[p]Thanks in advance for your help
