We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

I have been chucking my charcoal into the egg just above the air holes. However, it is very smoky for some time after lighting. Also I struggle to hold much above 350deg F. I'm using BGE charcoal but the lumps are rather small. Last point my top daisy wheel is very slack. Even when closed lots of smoke leaks around the disk ie it doesn't lie flat. Any advice?
