Hey guys -
So I'm new to the green egg and getting to my temps has been a bit of a chore.
Can someone walk me through a tried and true method for hitting a temp - say 350 - from lighting to a stable temp? I'm using the quick starters but when those are gone I'll be switching to a charcoal chimney.
What I'm doing now is getting the fire started (several coals lit) and closing the egg with both dampers wide open. Once I notice the temp start to climb, I'll close both slightly to keep from blowing past my target temperature - as it takes forever to drop. The temp will climb a bit more and finally stabilize (usually well below my target). Then it will start to actually decrease.
Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I eventually get it but it seems to be alot more work than most are having.
I've seen the guide with the damper settings, btw.
