I have a medium egg.
While I've reached temps of over 900 before, it's spotty and unreliable. The best results I've had were with lump charcoal (not BGE, filled up to nearly the top edge of the fire box. If I do this with BGE char, I have to pile it even higher and it's a huge waste of money. Even then, once I've thrown a few pizzas on there, the temp starts dropping and I'm lucky to keep it over 600.
For those of you who routinely cook at over 800-900, what's the trick? How do you reach that temp and sustain it ?
Thanks in advance
