Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Can you REALLY start the Egg with Rubbing Alcohol or is someone pulling my leg?

I just tried this. Used about maybe a 1/4 and waited about 45 seconds before lighting. I'm using the standard 70% USP Isopropyl. I did in fact light, but didn't seem to be able to STAY lit.

Am I doing something wrong or is this an urban myth that I've just fallen prey to?

If true... just what is the "trick" for starting a fire this way?
